I’ve been watching Eclipse Aviation for years–they’re a jet manufacturer startup founded by an early Microsoft guy, aiming to build cheap business jets. Cringely’s latest article talks about Eclipse and a new airline that’s buying 300 of the little jets, aiming to turn them into a sort of air taxi service–they’re so cheap that it’s possible to compete with big airlines without having to stick to fixed routes and timetables.

Except here’s the fun part–the company that buys the little jets (from a Microsoft guy) and lets lots of people share them–it’s being run by a guy from Citrix.

Some things never change.
