lucent, inferno and hype
i had the misfortune to attend the TMA29 exhibition in Brighton yesterday. in amongst the sales droids, the sun hype tent (with the word "java" hanging from every lip) and the hired women in short skirts (a feminist would have firebombed the place), i found that lucent technologies were represented, so i headed in that direction, thinking that somebody there might be able to talk about Inferno. no such luck - i acquired a lucent squashy ball and a lucent yo-yo, but nobody there had the slightest clue what i was talking about. i was disappointed, to say the least. what exactly is lucent's attitude towards inferno ? inferno doesn't need the hype that is being given to java, but surely lucent's own sales people should have heard of it, at the very least ?! rog. p.s. on a completely unrelated note, is there a way to prevent processes gaining access to the '#' namespace directly ?
