Last week I had the opportunity to meet Rick Ross (founder of JavaLobby) together with many other Java, Linux and Flash developers.  This was part of an MTS event organized in Redmond, and throughout I definitely saw a lot of myths and perceptions (from both sides) being dispelled.

Rick has compiled a trip report on the event, which can be found here

Check out Rick's comment about Redmond - "wet, gray and has awful traffic" <g>
