Perkypants interviews Havoc Pennington. From the introduction: "Havoc has been a GNOME hacker for a loooong time, with far too many outstanding hacks to his name. He wrote
GTK+/GNOME Application Development, which is still widely regarded as the beginning GNOME hacker's bible, and
chairs the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors. Havoc currently works at Red Hat, and very infrequently posts updates
to the RHAD Labs news page.
GConf first appeared in GNOME 1.4, used by applications such as Nautlius and Galeon. It will be utilised across the entire
GNOME 2.0 platform."
