Daryl Taft from e-Week has just published an article ‘Eclipse Casts Shadow on Sun‘. Although the title is a bit sensational, it is a good review of the Eclipse vs NetBeans discussion. He has also written a follow-up article on Lee Nackman’s explanation of the Eclipse name that he presented at EclipseCon.
Daryl is one of the hardest working journalist that covers Eclipse. He talks to tons of people and generally has good insight into the trends and mood of the app dev community.
