  1. Wow. Eclipse is absorbing all the oxygen in the room. As the momentum continues, it should help the Lotus Designer 8.5 marketing.


  2. Eclipse is really growing. As a notes/java guy I used to stair at my fellows Visual Studio clients, but not anymore these days. Good news about RIM, unroftunately the market for Blackberry is very low in my country
