"While the projects that make up Galileo are all open source,
the primary driver behind the release train is to encourage greater
commercial adoption. Eclipse-based tools are already used by many
companies including IBM, Oracle, Nokia and SAP, among others."
"'By wrapping up all these projects and shipping them together,
it makes it a lot easier for companies to pick up the Eclipse
platform and base their product on top of it,' Mike Milinkovich,
executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, told
InternetNews.com. 'Lining up all the product releases on the same
day means that inter-dependencies between the projects are aligned,
version compatibility issues are taken care of, and you don't get
the latency you might have if a project is waiting for another
project to ship.'"
