[News] Novell's Mono Gets Further Away from the GNU/Linux Desktop

Hash: SHA1

| Since a few weeks when Rahul started packaging Gnote for both Rawhide and 
| F10, I became a huge fan of the application, it does everything I needed from 
| Tomboy and its author has frequent releases, with lot of features added and 
| bugs fixed (the 0.3.1 release crossed the threshold for me). On top of that, 
| I was able to remove the Mono stack from my computer (has using it 
| exclusively for Tomboy), I am more Free now.     


If mono brings doubt, moonlight sheds light

| So, why are we including this in Ubuntu and in light of this, shouldn't we 
| re-examine the mono case too?  The moonlight FAQ claims that you can 
| redstribute it even though the convenant specificly says you can't.  
| I get a very distinct trojan horse feeling on both these technologies.



Tomboy, Gnote, and the limits of forks

| Some people have complained about its faults for a while; Hubert Figuiere,
| instead, chose to do something about it in the form of the Gnote utility.


Gnote vs Tomboy and complete Mono removal

,----[ Quote ]
| Has many of you may know, a new project has gotten a lot of attention lately
| in the Linux world. That project’s name is Gnote.  Gnote is an experimental
| port of Tomboy to C++, it’s the same note taking application, minus things
| not done yet, including panel applet, boatload of addins and synchronization,
| but just be patient and you will have a full port of Tomboy soon.
| Today I’ve decided to give Gnote a try and install it on my system, I used
| the unofficial Gnote PPA for Ubuntu provided by Vadim Peretokin, at the
| moment it still hasn’t been updated to the latest version of Gnote, but I’m
| sure it will soon. My first impressions were good, it loaded a lot faster
| than Tomboy, 2.324 seconds versus the 0.280 seconds of Gnote and it was also
| three times lighter than Tomboy, maybe because of all of the Mono bloat that
| Tomboy depends on…


Things to Avoid on Ubuntu

| This is Linux port of Microsoft sliverlight apparently designed to compete
| with adobe flash. Silver light doesn't offer anything new that's not already
| offered by adobe flash.
| Linux distros previously included some of the technologies that were
| controversial because they were widespread and to make interoperability easy
| for new users. We don't need this turd and it's not widespread.
| Mono
| Here comes another patent covered piece of junk aggressively pushed by
| Novell.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
