[ Thanks to Irish

On Thursday November 29, eclipse.org will be hosting a webcast
announcing its board of directors and an overview of this the open
sourced platform. This will give Linux users a fully mature IDE
that can be deployed on Linux workstations. Developers using
Eclipse on Linux can also collaborate with developers using Eclipse
on Windows, and vise-versa. Also, the whole thing is open sourced
so developers can check out the code.

For those of you wondering what Eclipse is, it has been
described to be similar to WebSphere as a completely functional API
that can create Web sites, Java programs, C++ Programs, Web
Services, EJBs, and is easily upgradeable by plug-ins. Included in
the webcast will be an explanation of how the eclipse can provide
developers with more freedom to do those things coming down the
pipeline.
