As I don't want to appear as someone who gave up Jakarta and XML to Sun
and IBM respectively... And that's what you said...

You can't blame a company for saving my butt when I was about to be torn
away from what I did in the last years... And everything is going to be
great until developers keep their own integrity towards open-source,
even sometimes going against their employer. I'm not afraid to start a
war at Sun if that's nedeed, as I'm scared to start one here. But
sometimes I need to do it.

Don't worry. No decisions are taken "behind the scenes" in some
corporate offices by managers and such. I wouldn't be working in one of
them :) :) :)
