I don’t want people to use Gnome applications anymore…

I read today that Damien Sandras is in doubt about working on Gnomemeeting. That’s human being and that’s understandable. But, whatever, Damien has doing a really great job for Gnome and for the OpenSource community. His application is really great. I’m using it to speak with Beber in Sweden, using my DV camcorder, and it’s fun!

We could consider Gnomemeeting as a finished software : polished, useful and working without major bug or annoyance. So, why working on it anymore ? Most people are using skype and its proprietary protocol. What can Gnomeeting do more ?

Too early in Sweden

The bulb and the flower…

Hula-Jabber I’m running the Fritalk public Jabber server for nearly 10 months now. I highly recommend you this wonderful Jabber server with all services you ever dreamed about and a bunch of friendly admins. (Watch out! The 1.0 release is coming shortly…)

But since a few days, we have a new big concurrent : Google Talk. I’m very pleased that google is using Jabber. Maybe we will soon see a world where IM is like email : standardized and not centralized.

I was really happy until I saw that the Google Talk Jabber server is closed to other servers. It’s just like Gmail would only allow you to send and receive mails to and from a Gmail account!

Unacceptable.
