Back from Cebit

Yesterday on the `I-want-all-the-merchandising'-day I visited Cebit. There was lots of interesting stuff to see:

  • Gnome

    Gnome booth

    I needed some time to find the Gnome-booth but finally it was quite nice to talk to some people I only had known by mail or IRC before. Herzi showed me his work on the font-manager which seems great and quite stable as Josh pointed out by opening all of his 240 fonts at the same time, cluttering his whole desktop. He also asked me to confirm this bug so I did now. Anyway would be cool if GNOME-Foundation could effort some booth-girl next time ;-)

    Later I attented Herzi's talk about GNOME which was quite interesting and I really know more about GNOME now. Here's a picture:

  • Mono

    There was a talk scheduled about Mono but unfortunately Oscar Forero failed to set up his notebook with the projector and it did not take place.

  • Microsoft

    On the Mircosoft booth nearly any PC was running Windows Vista and I assume it is yet quite stable. Anyway it does not look like that it will become much more than a better Windows XP. Interesting anyway!

Of course there was much more to see but it is simply impossible to see all.

On my way home I started hacking on the autocompletion feature for the gtksourceview-editor in anjuta and I hope I will be able to finish it today.
