We are planning to brief some industry analysts on the Eclipse 3.1 launch. We do this to make sure they understand the new news about Eclipse, so they can communicate it to their customers. Their customers tend to be decision makers in the large companies and ISVs. The hope is that they will help educate these decision makers on open source and Eclipse. Thus making it easier for developers to introduce Eclipse into large companies.
The current plan is to brief Mark Driver, Thomas Murphy, Mike Blechar from Gartner, Carl Zetie, John Rymer and Mike Gilpin from Forrester and Steve O’Grady, James Governor from Redmonk. If there are other analysts that you think we need to brief please let me know.
