JBoss and "Professional Open Source"
In case you were unclear on the JBoss group's strategy, you can read this. I think that what JBoss is doing is another interesting experiment in the space of funding open source development. It's going to be interesting to see how they mix the consulting/support model in to the product. People already complain that the documentation is so bad that you have to have consulting/training. Will there be more of this? It'll be interesting to watch.

My only complaint is the use of the term "professional open source". The open source community definitely doesn't need JBoss's stamp of approval to make it "professional". I think that the Linux, Samba, and Apache HTTPd teams would find this idea particularly ridiculous.

More on the 15" AlBook
John Sircusa at Ars Technica has the best 15" AlBook review that I've seen. He covers the lid latch problem, the lid gap problem, and the battery life problem. That's a lot of problems. And the battery life really bothers me, especially when there are Intel notebooks that will go for quite a bit longer.

Meanwhile Barefeats.com has some benchmarks of AlBooks vs Windows notebooks. That's not looking too good either...

NetNewsWire Lite 1.0.5
I'm really pleased that there are a large number of Macintosh users who read my blog (Actually, I'm pleased that anyone reads this blog). So I'm very pleased to announce that the latest version of NetNewWire Lite is available. One of the biggest improvements is support for Gzip encoded RSS feeds. Please help my bandwidth usage by grabbing the new version of NetNewsWire!
