In the TechRepublic.com/ZDNet article by Brian Kotek just posted on October 26, 2007, he describes Adobe ColdFusion 8 as:
"...a force to be reckoned with in the application server space. I’ve been using ColdFusion for 10 years, and I haven’t seen the community this excited about a new release in a long time. The recent release is by far the most compelling version since they moved to the Java platform — and possibly even the most compelling version ever."
...just like the 2007 World Series Champions Boston Red Sox!
Lots of goodness came out of Boston in 2007!
