Yay for Ubuntu 10.04 font rendering!

I wanted to say this for the record : I don't know what changed in Lucid Lynx, but the fonts are amazingly crisp. Simply awesome. It's a treat to the eyes. Kudos to the Ubuntu team. Well done folks!

Good luck, jag

The exodus of sun's engineering talent from Oracle continues as James Gosling (affectionately addressed as "jag" by the community) moves on.
I sincerely hope that he continues to be actively involved & engaged with the Java community, and can now play the role of the independent benefactor of Java with no affiliation to the primary steward of Java (Sun then, Oracle now).
