Within the 300+ new features of Leopard, two are those I was waiting for: Java 6 and the ZFS file system. Now that none of them is there (ZFS support is read-only), what's next?

For my today's presentation of blueMarine I really intended to use Linux Ubuntu for the first time - but it's incredible how creative mr. Murphy is (in the end the presentation was perfectly fine...

By the end of the year, blueMarine should hopefully spin off another sub-project: ForceTen, focused on the world of map rendering and geotagging.

So, it's high time we ignored all those useless polls "which language do you use most?" or those brain-damaging inferences about  programming book sells or job ads - the really important...
