It ought to be added that deIcaza&Boys (or Novell&Miguel) changed an article 2
years after it had been published in Linux Planet. It said that GNOME was
going to be rewritten in C# or something along those lines, but the recent
backlash (mainly because of me) gave them some flak, so they went around
censoring content, or rewriting history for all I can tell.
