EAZEL, once the shining hope for establishing Linux on the
desktop with its graphical interface and server-based
network environment, has announced it is shutting down
after less than a year and a half of operation.
In a note to Gnome developers late on Tuesday May 15, Eazel
co-founder Bart Decrem confirmed recent rumors, saying the
company was closing its doors because it had failed to
secure further funding.
For the full story:
Eazel was the Mt View based
company that built a desktop environment (free) on top of
GNOME, the free desktop environment for Linux. It was founded
and funded by one of the Mac gurus.
Funny thing, free software. Doesn't make money.
This is more confirmation that Motif is in with a real chance
on Linux, simply
because the only real applications are written with it.
