SuSE, openSUSE Attachmate now owns Novell and therefore, by extension, also owns SUSE and openSUSE. With Oracle currently doing everything in its power to thoroughly destroy what's left of Sun's open source commitments, scepticism abound about the future of SUSE, and more specifically of openSUSE. Attachmate's CEO has answered some questions about the future of SUSE and openSUSE, and as far as words go, it's looking good.

And as far as development environments go, Visual Studio.NET is a better product than any of the Java development environments available.


I take that back. There is one Java IDE that is as good as Visual Studio.NET. IntelliJ IDEA. It's the only one that can compete with Visual Studio.NET.

Eclipse has been stagnant for years now and has been showing virtually no innovation. And Eclipse WTP is terrible when it comes to Javascript development.

NetBeans had a lot of promise, but it seems Oracle is intent on discontinuing development and support for half of it's features. So I don't know what the future holds for NetBeans anymore.

IntelliJ Idea is awesome though, and can effectively compete with Visual Studio.NET quite well.
