    Eclipse independence

    Friday, May 13, 2005 - 03:40 by Mike Milinkovich
    NetBeans just shipped their 4.1 release. Congratulations guys. By all reports it is a much better Java IDE than its predecessor releases. But this statement included in InfoWorld’s coverage of their release certainly has me stumped: The Sun executives also expressed doubts about whether the Eclipse Foundation actually is independent...

    Joe Winchester sent me an email asking whatever happened to the last slide presented at EclipseCon this year. You know, the one that talked about the various consumption patterns of the attendees. Well, here it is. You really have to wonder if there is a correlation between the 792 gallons...
