- Google Summer of Code™
Google Summer of Code 2006 is a program that offers student developers stipends to create new open source programs or to help currently established projects. Google will be working with a variety of open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several hundred projects over a three-month period. The inaugural instance of the program, which took place last summer, brought together 400 students and 40 mentoring organizations from 49 countries.

Note: To inspire young developers and provide students in Computer Science to do work related to academic pursuits during summer, to support existing open source projects. We concentrated on the student population. It made sense to spread the work throughout the open source and free software community. Th ...moree Apache Software Foundation knows a lot more about what an Apache project needs than Google does, more likely to ensure that an applicant gets the right kind code.

- IGN: The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II Review
Battle for Middle-earth II is proof that EA was serious about getting back into the good graces of serious RTS fans. There's a lot to experience with this entry into the series including three new factions, a redesigned base building mode, some awesome new powers, terrific improvements to the engine, a tighter campaign mode, and both skirmish and War of the Ring. This might actually be a detriment to some players who liked the simplicity of the first game, but I'm quite pleased. It's a pretty traditional RTS, but it's also a very good one.
