"De Icaza greeted the CodePlex announcement as another "step in the right direction" by Microsoft. If one is inclined to believe him - and there are some in the FOSS community who still live and die by his every word - then this is one move by Microsoft towards becoming " a full member of the open source community".

"De Icaza is one of the board members of the CodePlex Foundation. He is credited with being the "creator of Gnome" by the foundation though he is a co-founder of the project, the other founder being Federico Mena Quintero. The Foundation has also highlighted the fact that De Icaza received an award from the Free Software Foundation in 1999 - though if he is a "passionate and long-standing advocate for open source" one would be more inclined to ask why he hasn't received any recognition since.""
