Re: [eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - Feb 16, 2011

I missed this meeting, so I am wondering what was the outcome of the platform for screen shots discussion topic. My input is that for 4.1 we should certainly be using Windows 7, since almost all screen shots will need re-taking for 4.1 anyway. For 3.x, I'm less convinced that switching is worth the effort (the UI is stable enough that this would create a lot of new work for us).
