I'm a lover not a fighter

I've been asked, rightly so, if Shades is 'better' than Hibernate or JDO implementations or EJB 3. The answer is no. It is not better. But it is different. It's also new, so it doubtless has too many bugs to even dream of playing in the same spaces as the excellent products like Kodo, Cocobase, and others, that implement a variety of standards.

What I want to say, is that I didn't write Shades for anyone else's benefit. I wrote Shades because software, for me, is fun to write. It relaxes my mind after a long day at work, and let's me play with puzzles and art all rolled into one. It's not a competition, especially since I don't get paid!
