Q&A with Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director, Eclipse Foundation

Author: Chris Preimesberger

Mike Milinkovich of Ottawa is the executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, which governs the Eclipse community. Originally a consortium that formed when IBM released the Eclipse Platform into open source, Eclipse became an independent body on Feb. 2, 2004. It drives the platformâs evolution
to benefit the providers of software development offerings and end-users. All technology and source code provided to this ecosystem remain
openly available and royalty-free. Source: Interview on Feb. 24.

ITMJ: Eclipse is in its fourth year of existence and just marked its first year as an independent foundation outside of IBM. How
would you describe the "state of the union" at this time?
