lycano There are multiple way that Bukkit can survive (much longer). You just won't have the old CraftBukkit + Bukkit most likely. Probably check out what the Spigot team is doing. In addition you might have Glowstone (some day...) and compatibility layers/plugins with other mods. It can't be excluded that with the refforts of the Spigot project the lifetime of the ecosystem will be much longer. I am curious how things will go concerning "who is Bukkit".
