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.

VB6 Support
by Jonathan Pryor on Fri 1st Apr 2005 13:48 UTC

Someone had suggested writing VB6 support to the Mono mailing lists. The general consensus was that this would be difficult, since the VB6 language isn't the problem, but support for existing code is. Existing code which will rely on existing 3rd party COM objects, which won't necessarily run under Linux.

If you want VB6 support, you need Wine support.
