I appreciate you taking time to answer those ;)
First of all, let me just clarify that this is not a big affair, and that my concern only focus on the exact sentence "Che as an alternative to IntelliJ". I believe the other pieces of the article are good, that Che's vision and strategy is good, that Che is probably going to get a good market share, Che brings some attention on the Eclipse community... Che is definitely a positive thing for the Eclipse ecosystem, and I'm not judging that.
I also understand that communicating about Che can be a tricky thing when one of its main competitors (Eclipse IDE) is so closely related ;)
Yes, and when I read it, I understand it's your words. But most readers don't know that, and some have really seen that as an official statement from the Eclipse Foundation.
I'm failing to understand what concretely that means. I probably didn't look at the right comments. The one I saw that started the discussion was something like "Eclipse Che as an alternative to IntelliJ shows how the Eclipse IDE is doomed". I don't call it a good market will.
However, I may have looked only at the bad ones and missed the ones that have produced a good impact on the image of Eclipse IDE.
Once again (I really want it to be clear), I'm not and I won't be upset about Che's success. It's only one sentence that I believe gave to the audience bad signals about the Eclipse IDE.
