Dylan is a programming language designed by Apple and Carnegie Mellon University.
Gwydion Dylan is an open-source implementation of a Dylan interpreter and compiler. In true open-source spirit it is of course maintained by a group of programmers all over the world in their spare time. Gwydiondylan.org isn't particularly easy to remember, is it? So the site's webmaster, Andreas Bogk, asked me to include a link from my site. In my day job I am a network engineer at an ISP in the UK and am a keen Linux user, so of course I support any open source initiative.
You don't know what Open Source is? Then you need to visit the Open Source website and also that of Eric S. Raymond, a leading advocate for the open source movement.
Here are some links to important and useful links to open source projects and resources, and some cool stuff. More will be added in time.
