Why are there two open source projects (products)?
Why might I want to use OpenEJB instead of JBoss?

And don't forget Apache Geronimo. (well, ok it's not out yet, but...)
Why choose one instead of the other? Why choose one commercial product over the other? I have never used openejb and I talked to anyone who has deployed openejb in a commercial setting. I have used JBoss in that way and I know many others who have. That's not to say that you should necessarily choose JBoss, but I personally would need a bit of convincing before I went with openejb over JBoss...
