dunno if this is all that interesting to the people interesting in using
i do know that i got to go to a developers meeting due to the interest and donations of a lot of interested parties and i am so so honored to be allowed to represent such a smart and decent group of human beings.
miguel i think is in charge of ximian who is making changes to the gimptool kit that are, well, even the reason they give is fairly idiotic. they gave me an idiotic reason and then started to be rude to me and give me a real disrespectful runaround which has now ended up here; on this list where probably many of the contributors to my trip to the developers meeting are.
I personally feel Miguel owes you and the GIMP community a reasonable explanation of the reason for these changes.
since miguel is too busy and not involved to tell me who he is, i have googled around and come up with an introduction to the man behind the men who are making the decisions about what the gimp tool kit widgets do and why:
here is miguel sucking up at a microsoft thing: http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/network/2003/07/10/photos1.html?page=14
I find this a bit disturbing. I've always had concerns regarding Mono, now wonder if Miguel's true purpose of Mono. I've never thought it was a very good idea to build something based on a Microsoft technology.
sorry he did not have time to return the "who are you" request i made several weeks ago, however the web presence i was able to find is probably certainly more entertaining.
To be sure. :)
miguel is quite famous in the linux world, btw. there is a big article (and important as well, in my world at least) entitled "Sellout or Savior" http://www.technologyreview.com//articles/04/09/freedman0904.asp
An article worth the read.
