Re: [WDSCI-L] EGL to become Eclipse project
I do not think there will be much difference from the end-user in terms
of functionality. The crucial thing is that it moves from being some
obscure internal IBM project to be a official Eclipse project, with all
that that means. It hopefully also results in that all talk about "IBM
may kill this any moment, like many other previous technologies" will go
away. Perhaps IBM will loose interest and abandon the codebase, but at
least it is publicly available so others can pick up the ball. Being an
Eclipse project may even gather enough momentum that the user base grows
enough for IBM not to loose interest.
For us, this move means that we may reconsider our decision about not to
use it :-)
