In the best of traditions...

>eBook vs Paperbooks (pBooks).

Well, there's no question that if you walk to the library and borrow your books, that's going to be the hands down winner. And there is nothing that can replace the smell of three-hundred-year-old library books :-)

But if all you care about is carbon footprint and you're comparing buying paper books vs Kindle or iPad, the e-readers will win after 18-23 books. And that doesn't count if you are buying a book from Amazon and having is shipped to you on a UPS truck in a disposable envelope.

Oxygen is very good. As in the theme builder

Have you used it personally? Or just people you collaborate with?

I've been playing around with a demo and it's pretty dizzying. It's like a whole new ecosystem and mentality. My impression is that if you really know Oxygen well, you would be super productive and the code it turns out seems to be pretty reasonable in general. But getting up to speed with it might take a long time and I'm not sure I want to invest that time.

Thoughts?
