Interview with Miguel de Icaza

Netcraft: Interview with Miguel de Icaza, co-founder of Gnome, Ximian and Mono.

We have a lot of existing customers which are also considering Linux desktop migrations and rolling out some of these programs, so we're learning from them. For example, in Extramadura and Andalucia they've been going out for two years now with these deployments. They have 200,000 deployed seats and they're going towards 400,000 deployed seats by the end of the summer on pure Linux, Gnome, Mozilla, OpenOffice desktops. They're two very, very large deployments, probably the largest deployments of Linux desktops today. These are being used by kids, by grandmothers.
