InfoWorld: Eclipse may take new name after reorganization

InfoWorld: Eclipse may take new name after reorganization: September 05, 2003: By : Application Development "The group in charge of the open-source Eclipse project approved a three month long restructuring process this week that should reduce IBM's dominant role in the effort and make the project more attractive to Java vendors such as Sun Microsystems and BEA Systems.
The process will transform Eclipse into an independent corporation and may even see the project assume a new name that is more palatable to Sun, which has long been miffed by IBM's decision to name the effort after a celestial event associated with the obscuring of the Sun."

Yeah, a new name -- that will make all the difference. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to clear statements from Sun, Oracle, and others on what this means to their current Java products.
