Eclipse celebrating it’s 5th Birthday

It’s been 5 years since Eclipse was released as an open source project, so it is time to celebrate this special occasion. From the beginning of my professional career I am using Eclipse as my IDE and now I am really celebrating this occasion… 🙂

New Packaging style for Windows Vista and 2007 Office System :)


The Office 2007 and Vista will now come in a small, hard plastic container that appears to be about the size of a normal DVD shell. And they are planning to extend this packaging style to other Microsoft products after the launch of Windows Vista and 2007 Office system.

Cake 2 Mozilla from Microsoft

Microsoft sent a congratulation cake for the Firefox 2 release to Mozilla. According to a post on a Mozilla employee’s personal website, Microsoft recently delivered a large cake to Mozilla’s Mountain View, CA, office to congratulate the company on the launch of the latest open-source browser. A short icing inscription read: “Congratulations on shipping! Love, the IE Team.” Microsoft even had added its Internet Explorer logo on the cake. But its not in their ‘traditional Blue’ color 😉

See the photograph and the post, here in Fred’s Personal blog, with the cheeky foot line, “No, it was not poisoned.”

Merging galaxies … Wow !!!


This Hubble image of the Antennae galaxies the sharpest yet of this merging pair of galaxies. As the two galaxies smash together, billions of stars are born, mostly in groups and clusters of stars. The brightest and most compact of these are called super star clusters. (NASA, ESA/Hubble, and B. Whitmore – Space Telescope Science Institute/Handout/Reuters)
