Ted Leung on the air: Open Source, Java, Python, and ...
It seems that the Netbeans and Eclipse partisans are trading one ups over the inclusion of hippie-expansion in their text editors. I like hippie expansion -- I've been using it since my days as a grad student in the early 90's. However, I'm puzzled by the fuss over it. According to my copy of the Emacs Lisp sources, hippie-expansion has been around since at least 1992. Is it really such a great achievement to be incorporating this feature 8 or 13 years after it appears in Emacs? I'm being a little extreme here, but it seems crazy to be touting the appearance of hippie-expansion as some indicator of IDE prowess.

You can also use some Wiki style:
