Fair warning: this is a meandering one and I'm basically a wet blanket the whole way through) Last week, HCL held the third of their Twitter-based developer Q&As, with this one focusing on XPages and Designer.

In the words of Red Hat's Paul Cormier, "Today is a banner day for open source."--See Red Hat Link 4 below. In speaking/chatting with several people in the IBM Community Sunday evening to learn their concerns and perspectives, along with Mr. Cormier, I too offer a more optimistic take.
