If there is one thing the Russians do better than anyone else, it's build IDEs for the Java community. Given the fact that most Java developers would rather walk across hot coals than use a piece of software that wasn't GPL-licensed, it's amazing how all of these principled objections go out the window when it comes to their development tool of choice. Forget about the freely available NetBeans and Eclipse IDEs -- all of the best software developers in the community would much rather pay out of their own pockets than work with anything other than JetBrains' flagship product, IntelliJ IDEA.
