Google Calendar, the Eolas Patch for IE, DReaMing on, JBoss and more...

Summary: This week on The Dan & David Show, Dan joins me by phone from an undisclosed location in the foothills of the Pacific Northwest and we talk about Red Hat's acquisition of JBoss and Microsoft's rollout of an automatic patch to Internet Explorer -- what I'm calling the "Eolas patch" -- that adds more friction to an IE-based Web experience  and that also puts a feather in Firefox's hat.   Also on the agenda was Sun's project DReaM and Google's new jack-of-all-trades Calendaring service.

  • A small Red Hat/JBoss question...

    Since it's practically guaranteed that JBoss will be included in Red Hat's enterprise offerings, could we assume that it could also show up in it's community offspring, Fedora? This I ask because the previous release of Fedora featured Eclipse, a very professional Java IDE. I know Red Hat uses Fedora as its' "testing ground", but with something like JBoss, I could see if they make an exception. I don't use Fedora anymore, but if they include JBoss I'll give it another try.
