Both, I would not be able to say where it is worse.

Isn't that ironic? LispWorks 6 is totally snappy and looks/feels
I'm using the 64bit Cocoa-based version and it is quite great.
Compare that to the Java-based IDEs (Eclipse, IntelliJ, ...) which are
providing a lot of functionality, but always feel a bit sluggish and
where the UI is complex and kind of ugly.
