"At developerWorks' most recent Barcode event in Boston, Miguel de Icaza was the main attraction during his speech to over 300 software developers and software-developer-hangers-on, on a subject understandably close to his heart, GNOME. GNOME, one of Linux's answers to the ever-popular Windows GUI and development platform, is among the most popular platforms on Linux and other free operating systems. GNOME is continuing to expand under the anything-but-stilted guidance of its dynamic young founder, to include newly developed spreadsheet software from de Icaza's own venture, Helix Co., and the planned completion of a component architecture based on Microsoft's OLE2."
