    Default Good riddance

    This is actually good news.

    Icaza was the person instrumental in allowing Microsoft to market Silverlight as a cross-platform technology, even though its Linux port called Moonlight is missing support for Silverlight's critical selling point - video DRM. The effect of this is that Linux users cannot view Silverlight-based videos.

    The Linux world is better off without the "contributions" of this guy.

    We all mourn his leaving about as much as I mourn an outgoing fart.

    Yes go to your closed, walled-in platform you traitor. Seeing what you did to Gnome, good riddance and don't come back.

    The desktop was not fragmented before he himself started the GNOME project as an alternative to KDE...

    See, "fragmentation" is a good thing. At least we have the choice now. I couldn't care less if that means that there'll never be the Year of the Linux Desktop.

    Yeah. Because Qts license model based on CLA is as shady as Mark Shuttleworths mind. BTW I like the irony; KDE founder Matthias Ettrich has done the exacly same; Leaving Linux and went by the dark path of Nokia(MS).

    And Qt? After they went Blackberry crazy they are falling in love with... IOS.

    Miguel=Matthias
    MONO=Qt.

    Lesson: Add CLA and thing WILL blow up.

    Wonderful news! This stupid m$ troll should leave years ago, but it's good late than never. I just have two words to you, Icaza: get lost.

    One of the best things I've heard in a while. Not sure why he wasn't just kicked off in the first place.
