Novell and Ximian "Nat Friedman has been one of the driving forces behind the development of the Linux desktop for a few year now. First with his own company Ximian, founded together with Mono chief architect Miguel de Icaza, after its acquisition now inside Novell. A few months ago he has been named 'Technologist of the Year' by the VarBusiness magazine for his work around the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. Since then he has been promoted to Chief Technology and Strategy Officer for Open Source, besides the desktop he is also overseeing Novells server business now. During Novells Brainshare Andreas Proschofsky had the possibility to sit down with Friedman and talk about the Linux desktop, the consequences of the Microsoft agreement and the mistakes of the Hula project."

Can you prove that mono apps are resource hungry as you claim?, i'm sorry but F-spot wipes the floor with most of it's kind.

Beagle only was resource hungry because of a memory bug which is fixed now. The funny thing is that the so called native versions of the mono apps only just have started coming out, just to prove a point maybe?

The whole mono thing has prompted C programmers to try and come up with a their version of the mono app always claiming it's faster/better.
