Former linux free software developer, current photographer, almost Mac OS X free software developer, would-be musician.
I joined Rich and Chris back in 1995, submitting a patch for version 2.0 (now retired, it was written in C, based on the Athena widget set). Some time after that, we decided to rewrite the whole thing. It took us a long time to actually get anywhere, as we pretty much went through every single possible mistake in software development. Finally, in april 2001, we resumed serious work on Rosegarden. As of today, things are looking reasonably good : we're close to a 1.0 release, and Rosegarden is part of Studio... to Go! by Fervent Software (a company founded by Rich and Chris). Here's an interview of us.
