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.

Novell and Mono
by cendrizzi on Fri 1st Apr 2005 19:41 UTC

Things being said really are off.

Novell will continue to use Java on the server as they have been doing for some time (along with C and stuff for other stuff, like Hula I believe). It's clear, however, that they are starting to use mono for all their new client side stuff.

Want proof? Look at all their new products they've redone:
1. Beagle
2. F-spot
3. iFolder
4. Zenworks (linux client, maybe windows too)

I'm sure we'll start seeing some more server stuff too with mono but I somehow doubt they'll ditch java for web stuff, just my opinion on that though.
