I hope it's not too late to respond and be counted. When I first read
the above sentence the word 'completely' in front of 'open source'
struck me. What does it mean? Are we about to create yet another 'open

I don't like 'high performance', either. It seems that the world of
design and development is heading to simpler architectures, but
neither are advertisements, which are getting longer and longer and
longer...I'd prefer we use an open source J2EE 1.4-certified
application server - simple and easy to remember. Just as our web page
starts with.
