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.

Re: Mono and i

Both the iFolder server and the iFolder client are written in Mono.

Well, the version of iFolder I've been using for quite (i.e. about 3 years) while isn't. Are you telling me this was re-written in Mono? Wow. Since the old iFolder wasn't that great at all at handling lots of load I'll tread more carefully if using something newer.

A large portion of the ongoing scalability and reliability work of Mono has been driven by the needs of the iFolder server.

I certainly bet it has. There's nothing quite like a live project. I have my doubts about it still, but that's good news.

You can ask the iFolder developers directly on the iFolder mailing list.

Nope, I believe you. I had no idea the server side had been written in Mono since iFolder was dreamed up circa 2001.
