by Miguel de Icaza

Nat found an interview we did in 1999, when Ximian was launched. The inteview is here.

In 1999 we had to rename our company from "International Gnome Support" (IGS) to HelixCode as we feared IBM's stock would dip due to the naming conflict with their own "IBM Global Services" (IGS).

Update: It has been pointed out that our old domain for IGS is not something you want to click on if surrounded by polite company.
