Novell and Ximian One of the highlights of Joe Barr's trip to Salt lake City last month for BrainShare 2005 was the opportunity to interview Miguel de Icaza, a mercurial star of the free software movement who has been responsible for hugely successful projects and also founded his own company with Nat Friedman that was later acquired by Novell.

It's not true that SuSE is only a packaging unit. SuSE is actively developing KDE with more that 10 developers. KDE is the most important desktop in europe with a lot of users and corporate customers and a strategic product of Novell. Novell is for example sponsoring the development of Kontact, the KDE groupware client.

You can ask each of the over 300 SuSE employees of you are interested in the details.

I'm very disappointed of Miguel.
