more pre-alpha comments

Damien joins a previous post by Ugo in complaining about the RSS aggregator features in the pre-alpha of spaces. Exactly what I feared would happen if the pre-alpha release was more widely available: people trying it out and then not reporting problems at all, and simply giving up on it, and it's why I took the download down on Saturday. Luckily, those RSS problems are solved now, and will be available in the public alpha download tonight. Spaces would help Damien be free of email viruses as well.

As a side note, Damien also thinks that the name 'spaces' is silly. "Who can name a product 'spaces'?" he asks. Well, I can, apparently. Naming a product is not easy. But consider for a moment: Microsoft. Windows. Lotus. Notes. Groove. Outlook. Repeat aloud several times.

My point is, almost every single name in the computer industry can look silly out of context. And in any case, it's impossible to please everyone.

JDK & Mac

Marek mentions that spaces crashes on boot-time on OS X with JDK 1.4.1 DR 5 (just released, apparently), apparently trying to get the splash screen image. Too bad I don't have a Mac to test it...
