I am still alive and currently attending DebConf 15. Feel free to grab me for a talk. I am just shy, not antisocial.

Eclipse 3.5.2-1 in Debian unstable

We, the Debian Orbital Alignment Team (DOA team), have released eclipse 3.5.2-1 to Debian unstable today after nearly seven month of work and 612 commit to our git repository. Many thanks to our hero Niels Thykier (222 commits). Without him we wouldn’t have eclipse in Debian now. Thanks to Pablo Duboue, Adnan Hodzic, and Adrian Perez for their work on the Debian package. Last but not least, I want to thank Alexander Kurtakov and Andrew Overholt for eclipse-build, which we use to build eclipse.

You should have modern hardware, if you want to build eclipse. It will need three gigabytes free disk space, two gigabytes memory, and at least 12 minutes to build, but it can need hours (on old hardware or if you have not enough memory).

Update: Four days later we released 3.5.2-2 to Debian unstable. Today eclipse 3.5.2-2 was synced to Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid).

Love and hate search results

I read I love Google search results… OS X trails Linux and I am not satisfied with the search method. For example, I love Suse gives 408,000 results on google.com. On the German google.de website the first result for this search is WINE I love you on the openSUSE Forums. To reduce these false results, I searched the whole string in quotation marks. But is number of lovers a good indicator? No. Therefore I compare the number of lovers with the number of haters. Here are my results (searched on google.com).

BTW, there are no Edubuntu haters. I love GNOME, but where are all the GNOME lovers?

Edit: I have added Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
