brrr!

Beantown:

Cooked dinner for my parents last night. Up early. Flight to Boston.

Boston is beautiful as always, albeit a bit cold and very wet. But it is a nice change from the weather of Florida.

Jeff broke the news this weekend, but now it is official: today is my first day at Ximian (now a unit of Novell). I am going to be working as a kernel hacker, dedicated full-time to the advancement of the Linux desktop experience.

We have some very interesting things planned, and I am totally psyched. Desktop integration, better hardware discovery/management/naming/etc, 3D/X improvements, performance tuning, and the total elimination of world hunger, poverty, and bad beer.

Stay tuned.
