Maybe there’s hope for non-Microsoft / Java IDEs after all…

After months of talks with potential suitors, Borland decided not to sell off the tools division, but to spin it off instead. (On a unrelated note though, Borland also just recieved a delisting notice from NASDAQ). I'm happy about the spin off decision though. Not that I'm particularly fond of their tools (I've tried a number including Delphi and JBuilder, but didn't stick with them). But I take it as a sign that there is still room in the market for development tools that aren't either open source or from Microsoft.
