Agreed. There's a certain patina of content-free writing in it. However, I've been around that style of writing so long that I view it to be the 'language' of the types of readers eWeek is interested in. Poised in that style it's likely to be more believable to those readers.

Plus, the Perl coverage was so scant I hesitated in bringing it to PM, yet it was there, even though it ignored Perl's history as one of the oldest and most used Open Source tools ever. Shortsighted on their part, but still useful for us nonetheless IMHO.

The mention of Perl only with web development tools still makes me shudder.

Ultimately, it was good to see so much page space devoted to the Open Source category and helping to better legitimize it, even though much of it was from 50,000 feet.
