"Miguel de Icaza, author of the Linux GNOME GUI and desktop environment, is moving... to the Cambridge, Mass. area... and is hiring staff to develop office software for GNOME. He worked jointly with over 300 developers to build GNOME, one of whom, Nat Friedman, will be joining him in the new venture."
"He expects to have the company's first batch of applications ready by March 2000. The products will be available free over the Internet. De Icaza is hoping to build a service based company along the lines of Red Hat and is intent upon building up the GNOME brand. GNOME is currently in competition with KDE for the hearts and minds of the Linux community."
