the CollabNet Desktop -- Eclipse Edition. I also know to make sure
that developers are using JavaHL (especially since we'd have to
We are going to be redoing our infrastructure. If we get rid of
Microsoft Exchange and go with a more "Open" email and calendar
provider, we wouldn't need Windows desktops for developers. Instead,
we could have Linux machines which seem much faster with Eclipse.
One of our developers took his desktop machine, installed RedHat, and
then used an open VM to install Windows as a virtual machine. He does
his development in Linux and uses the Windows side for Outlook and
MS-Word. Maybe that's the way we should be going.
