Its funny to see Novell re-hash a 10 month old press release that it is bundling Websphere Children’s Edition with Suse. My favorite quote from this newsclip is:
Users looking for more advanced features are steered towards paid WebSphere products, which offer more advanced features.
This is why we will never take Apache Geranium seriously. As long as IBM is the major contributor to the project, they’ll never be interested in elevating Geranimo to the feature set of JBoss. It will always be a hobbled platform. This is why you should always read the fine print in vendor friendly open source projects. If the project is dominated by a vendor which has a competing closed-source, expensive product, the project will never get anywhere.
