    Seeking a Balance

    Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 23:30 by Mike Milinkovich
    I just came across this post on John O’Shea’s blog. I think it raises a very interesting point: Unfortunately, Eclipse.org is also starting to exhibit similar cracks. A cursory look at the architectures of many of the top level projects (WTP, STP, TPTP, BIRT etc.) shows the lack of intra-project...

    Embedded Eclipse

    Tuesday, April 4, 2006 - 23:45 by Mike Milinkovich
    I get to join Ian at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) this week. I spent several hours today walking the exhibit floor looking for Eclipse-based tools and products. They’re everywhere! I am really miffed with myself for forgetting to bring my camera. Just a partial list of companies showing Eclipse-based...

    Highlights So Far

    Tuesday, March 21, 2006 - 15:48 by Mike Milinkovich
    So here are my personal EclipseCon 2006 highlights so far: The Sun team promoting NetBeans out front. Hilarious! I’m proud to say that I’ve got my full allotment of NetBeans kit: one CD and one bottle of water. Joel Spolsky’s keynote. It’s been a long time since I’ve laughed as...

    See you there!

    Friday, March 10, 2006 - 13:49 by Mike Milinkovich
    I have to admit that I really enjoy EclipseCon. OK, so I’ve only been to one of the two so far, but last year really was a killer conference. As of last night we were just about at 1200 registrations, so we know for sure that this year’s event is...

    Gaming Buzz

    Wednesday, March 8, 2006 - 09:56 by Mike Milinkovich
    I have seen more than a few references to Tim O’Reilly‘s post on IDE buzz. I actually thought that Tim’s post was well written and thoughtfully speculative. No one can reasonably take issue with statements like: I don’t really follow the IDE wars, but this result surprised me, so I...

    Higgins Again

    Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 13:02 by Mike Milinkovich
    Anyone interested in my previous comments regarding the Higgins announcement should also read Bob Sutor’s post that so eloquently lays to rest much of the hyperbole concerning this announcement.

    The Mouse that Roared

    Monday, February 27, 2006 - 20:18 by Mike Milinkovich
    No, I am not talking about one of my all-time favourite B movies. I’m talking about the Higgins announcement today. (Higgins being both a project at Eclipse and a Tasmanian long-tailed mouse.) In the press release, IBM, Novell and Parity Communications announced support for the Eclipse Higgins project. The announcement...
