From 1 to 1000

Eclipse started as a closed project in IBM. The first version of Eclipse was released in November 2001. Eclipse was annonced by IBM as a $40 million donation to the open source community.

Erich Gamma explains how seven years with eclipse has changed his views on software development. See the video!

As of today, has 1125 eclipse plugin projects. In you will find around 100 high profile eclipse plugin projects.

Eclipse replicated from 1 to 1000 projects in 7 years. And where do we see our community after 10 years?

For me what does this mean. I can talk with lots of like-minded people in eclipse community. People who like to code, code and code again. :)
