Where is IBM in Rails?
I have absolutely no clue as to why David Heinemeier Hanson would hold any suspicious thoughts toward Sun. To me, given the big boys in the playground, they are the good guys. But reading it made me realize that I have not heard of IBM in a very, very long time.
Big Blue was quite quick to join the Java bandwagon, remember VisualAge for Java? But in the new world of dynamic languages IBM, apart from a few developerWorks articles, is not to be heard from.
And this from a company who once was a strong proponent of Smalltalk? In my mind, if there is a mystery man, he and his cat is sitting in an IBM campus somewhere.
