Ah, more non-sense from "segedunum".


This has been tried by many companies, including Eazel and Ximian in the past, and they simply haven't survived. They've got bogged down by their attachment to the software and religious arguments than they have by their attachment to staying in business.


Ximian did survive just fine until the day it got acquired by Novell. Ximian unlike most other companies during the boom did not spend its money left and right. We had the mentaility of not spending more money than we needed to.

But as usual for segendum, he lives in his own world. His reality is made up of his own stories that he spices up over time. Up to the point where his own arguments start making sense to him.

In reality, we have him commenting on a Gnome story because he feels that anything that helps Gnome (Mono, Gtk being cross platform, Tango) is a threat to his way of life.

It must be difficult living in fear. Thats why am extending a friendly hand to segedunum to bring him to a happy place, a safe place. A place where he can continue to use his tools, and yet, through the miracle of love he might accept that others can be quite excited. A world where ruining someone else's party is no longer amusing.

That being said (segedunum, please close your eyes now, am talking to the rest, you dont have to read what follows), segedunum reminds me of Dwight from "The Office" in the American edition.

Check out his blog, and tell me if he is not *identical*:

Or the "Comic Book Guy" in the Simpsons.

Ok, back to happy thoughts.


Miguel.

Thanks for the confirmation ;-).

Ximian did survive just fine until the day it got acquired by Novell. Ximian unlike most other companies during the boom did not spend its money left and right. We had the mentaility of not spending more money than we needed to.

You're investors didn't agree - quite obviously ;-). Please don't try and pull the wool over my eyes, I know it when I see it and I call it like I see it.

The LGPL thing is dead - OK?

But as usual for segendum, he lives in his own world. His reality is made up of his own stories that he spices up over time. Up to the point where his own arguments start making sense to him.

Well it threatens you, hence this ;-). Quite what that means is anyone's guess - you haven't answered any of it I notice.

In reality, we have him commenting on a Gnome story because he feels that anything that helps Gnome (Mono, Gtk being cross platform, Tango) is a threat to his way of life.

Well, after five or six years of the same thing it's hardly a threat to whatever it is you think I claim to cherish ;-).

It must be difficult living in fear. Thats why am extending a friendly hand to segedunum............................................................. .............................else's party is no longer amusing.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. It doesn't alter anything, nor does it answer the comment or any points I've made - does it? ;-).

Hoping things wont make them so. If you could, you would have produced a quote from them. Shame it does not exist.

I fail to see what the LGPL has to do with this though. Maybe you missed the part where Ximian had free *and* proprietary offerings?

As for your points, those are things that you should discuss with a professional, not with me. If you have specific questions though, I would be glad to answer them. Your assertions are just way out there to bother with them.
