"OLinux: What is the main purpose of Gnome and how far is it to achieve its goals?"

"Miguel de Icaza: GNOME is trying to bring new and missing technologies to free systems, in particular GNU/Linux, but GNOME works on pretty much every Unix out there...."

"OLinux: You have started a HelixCode, right? What is the focus of your business? How many cds of Helixcode have been sold you downloaded from the site? Are you planning an IPO?"

"Miguel de Icaza: Helix Code is a company focused on making sure free software is viable in today's world. So we are developing free software productivity applications under the GPL, and we are also providing consulting services and support for other companies."

"The Helix GNOME distribution is just a service to the GNOME community: we know that it is sometimes hard to keep up with the latest advances in the rapidly evolving GNOME project."
