I’m happy to announce that Oracle has become a hardware sponsor for EclipseCon Europe 2012.
I highly encourage other organizations to do the same, if not for this EclipseCon, then at any time in the future. Having funding to support additional hardware purchases gives the Eclipse webmasters much needed flexibility to keep doing their excellent work supporting the projects (doing equally excellent work).
One thing I’m particularly grateful for (recently) is that the recent Eclipse Juno release has Java 7 as a reference platform. I’m sure additional hardware contributions help everyone involved keep up with the pace of technology change.
