Press, Analysts, Friends, Others:

A general comment is that we need some time to put the roadmap together;
remember that the Sun people could not work with Oracle folks before CiC, so,
if there had been a detailed roadmap it would have come from Oracle, not a collaboration...

    Don't people write anything down anymore? What a hassle that one has to watch a video just to check up on these product plans.

    We need a "list of the dead" so that customers can easily figure that they need to find a new solution.

    Yes, this would be great!!! It seems like some projects are not very responsive anymore. We do not need business blabla screencasts but a list with the current and future status of a project!!!
