Dave Neary has a great blog post about Sun trying to do the right thing. It was refreshing to read this, and quite insightful. I’ve been watching the naming debate with some interest, if for no other reason than this is a conversation I’m quite interested in pushing my view in, and it helps to have a shared vocabulary.

The free software community is going to have a tough enough time winning in November, so to speak, without scaring off the newcomers.
