+10 years in GNOME

While cleaning up my very old mail, I came across some of the 1st mails I sent related to GNOME, and, a bit late though, I wish to celebrate my 10th anniversary as a GNOME user and developer. I started as a user in 1998, and after some hacking training (on my free time, since my job at that time was nothing related to free software), I came to announce version 0.1 of gnome-sql, which was later on integrated with the already existing GNOME-DB project.

In all these years, I’ve worked on several projects (GNOME-DB, Evolution, Control Center, openSUSE GNOME packaging and integration mainly), and, most important, I’ve met a lot of great people, and, fortunately, the future looks even more exciting (more news on this soon), so looking forward to my 20th anniversary :-)

  1. Congrats dude! I still remember the good time we had in Kristiansand. Seems like ages ago. (-:

    If you want my opinion, there will be no 20th… GNOME will have disappeared by then.

  3. Congratulations, I too will soon celebrate my first commit to the Spanish Gnome translation team ten years ago. It took me a while to find in the old cvs, but there it was. This is Gnome 1.4 we’re talking about here!! (Damn, those screenshots are ugly ;-)
