Michael Meeks - I'm one of the lucky
people paid to hack full time on Gnome, and at the same time be
part of the amazing company that Ximian is. I've been hacking on
Gnome for years and years now, before that I was a student at
Cambridge and worked for Quantel - who produce digital editing and
special effects boxes of amazing complexity and speed - yet with an
artist friendly interface. In that capacity I was a hardware
engineer, and in many ways I prefer hardware to software.
DS - Miguel De Icaza will be present at FOSDEM
to present Mono. How do you see Mono and Gnome interact in the
MM - I see Mono as an essential part of the
future Gnome development platform. Gnome has always had excellent
language bindings for all manner of different languages - but Mono
takes this to the next level - and brings us many other advantages
- but Miguel will present this; my advice is: just don't miss his
talk. Also Mono in and of itself brings together much of the Gnome
direction - pwrt. components, and quickly solves several of the
problems we've been kicking around inside the Gnome community. Of
course as a whole we've been iterating towards various mono-like
solutions for a long time.
