miguel de icaza has published his impressions of the pdc. insightful non-ms perspective.
the thing still irritating me is that since the release of the clr/cli specs the gnome/ximian ppl seem to be much more interested in clr/cli compatibility than in co-operation with kde. on one hand, the first is probably important for the long-term success of linux on the desktop, on the other hand the latter is crucial for the short-term survival of gnome/gtk as more and more distros bet on kde/qt. maybe it’s time for novell (backed by bigbrother and strategist ibm) to stimulate the kde/gnome/ximian/mono/qt/gtk co-operation as well, now as they own both ximian and suse.
