Mirco "MacSlow" Müller

Greetings everybody! I'm Mirco "MacSlow" Müller your friendly flipping hacker from the neighbourhood. I currently study computer-science in Aachen (Germany) and stuff like OpenGL, GLSL, cairo, glitz, gstreamer, compiz, SVG and realtime computer-graphics in general make my brain tick. Aside from that I always like a good portion of capoeira and acrobatics. I am a native german and I am also fluent in english (written and spoken).

Past/recent work

  • I take some responsibility for gnome-dock, which was cairo-dock a cairo/librsvg stress-test I wrote

  • I am writing and maintaining cairo-clock

  • I have written skydome and a few patches for compiz

  • my big gun lowfat, which is not released yet... patience

  • some more of my Linux-desktop-graphics research...

Future work

Here are the things that are constantly on my mind. Note: These tasks are not presented in any particular order.

  • move cairo-clock to the next level in terms of utilizing cairo and librsvg, making use of OpenGL (e.g. providing real 3D-objects as clocks), move cairo-clock to
  • once I find time to focus more on lowfat, let it live at and integrate it into nautilus and konqueror
  • help the cairo-project with hardware-shader support
