    Dear Denis:

    Tuesday, September 26, 2006 - 14:42 by Mike Milinkovich
    So one of the very common rants around the office here at the Eclipse Foundation is Denis (aka Webmaster) saying “ …there you guys go again with that Smalltalk this, Smalltalk that stuff! Arrggghhhhh!” He regularly mocks us that every lunch conversation will hit upon Smalltalk within 10 minutes, no...

    I speak English well

    I delivered a presentation for the Java Metroplex Users Group in Dallas, Texas last week. I think the talk went well; at least a few folks in the audience seemed to indicate that it went well and most people stayed around even after the pizza was gone. Almost everybody in...

    Nice to See

    Check out this IDE straw poll on tezaa. Although it is admittedly unscientific, I’m pretty amazed to see Eclipse out ahead of Visual Studio. Neat. P.S. Anyone wanna take a bet on how long it takes the Sun guys to astroturf this?

    During this short talk and demonstration during the Eclipse Tailgate Party at Eclipse World 2006, Ihor Strutynskyj brought up an incredibly important point. Unfortunately, he didn’t make the point as explicitly as I had hoped (I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for him to say...

    Microsoft Patent Pledge?

    Tuesday, September 12, 2006 - 15:41 by Mike Milinkovich
    I read with a great deal of interest the Microsoft Open Specification Promise. It was particularly interesting to read the community feedback and realize that Microsoft has been consciously and conscientiously working with the open source community to develop this document. That’s an important step forward for them, as it...

    Congratulations to Eclipse committer Mik Kersten for winning what looks like a very prestigious competition in Singapore. The competition was for PhD students to present business plans on the technology they are building as part of their thesis. As many might know, Mik is the leader of the way cool...
