    My Prediction Still Stands

    Tuesday, August 15, 2006 - 16:30 by Mike Milinkovich
    There has been a flurry of articles and blogging today regarding the process by which Sun will release Java into open source. I believe that this is a topic of specific interest to the Eclipse community, given our basis in open source and extensive use of Java. Apparently yesterday Sun...

    The Sins of My Youth

    Monday, August 14, 2006 - 15:48 by Mike Milinkovich
    My lovely and much younger sister works as a paralegal in a Dallas law office when she’s not running triathalons. So one day last week I guess she was bored and typed our not-very-common surname into the US PTO database and found this piece of hilarity. I genuinely had no...

    More AJAX & Eclipse Coolness

    Wednesday, July 26, 2006 - 13:27 by Mike Milinkovich
    So I’m here at OSCON and having a great time. (If anyone wants to get together here, please call my cell phone 613-220-3223). During Tim O’Reilly’s keynote he talked about a bunch of cool technologies that he believes are shaping the future of the Web. One that he singled out...

    Depth and Breadth

    Tuesday, July 18, 2006 - 11:23 by Mike Milinkovich
    In my role, I spend quite a bit of time following the various companies and products building on top of the Eclipse platform. That could probably become a full-time job if I let it. There is an enormous amount of energy in the Eclipse ecosystem. But every once in a...

    German Culture

    Monday, July 17, 2006 - 14:38 by Mike Milinkovich
    Sometimes I wonder if I was German in a previous life. I certainly spend a lot of time there, and I always enjoy myself. Seriously, any country that firmly believes that beer and business mix is my kind of place. Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be in...

    Eclipse Callisto Installed!

    Friday, June 30, 2006 - 18:37 by Mike Milinkovich
    Basically, I am at best a casual Eclipse user, as coding is not generally part of my day-to-day job any longer. But I do think it’s pretty cool how easy it is to download and install all of the projects that shipped as part of the Callisto release. I just...

    Foundation in the Wild

    Monday, June 26, 2006 - 14:04 by Mike Milinkovich
    The staff of the Eclipse Foundation are a little spread out. We have most of the people here in Ottawa, but Bjorn Freeman-Benson, Ward Cunningham and Anne Jacko are all in Portland, Skip McGaughey is in North Carolina and Ralph Mueller is in Germany. Since everyone is so spread out...

    The Callisto Culture

    Thursday, June 22, 2006 - 12:40 by Mike Milinkovich
    Probably very few people know this, but when I first heard of the idea of doing what has become known as Callisto, I hated the idea. In fact, I attempted an ultimately unsuccessful argument against it. There were various reasons for this, but chief amongst them was that I didn’t...

This is to complement the initiative they announced last week around mobile Linux. We’ve been working towards this for some months now, and...
