    Hi Geertjan, I noticed you've introduced quite a bit commercial software these days, which are not open-source, I guess. So, could you also introduce some open-sourced ones, if any, so that we might dig into the software and gain some insights?

    Hi Mike, hope you're kidding. The screenshots page has heaps of open source NetBeans Platform applications: http://platform.netbeans.org/screenshots.html

    Oh, I just meant the ones you showed here look quite more attractive:) But obviously, it comes with a price~ Of course, I've been checking out some of the showcases on the netbeans website. Really helpful!
