In DW, Mint widens the gap over Ubuntu. 3357 to 2061 now for a
7-day timespan. In better news, Ubuntu seems to be dumping some Mono.

"- Rhythmbox / Banshee :
This subject was a bit of surprise for me, I didnât expect such discussion will 
happen. However, the 2 applications have problems :
- - Banshee : Problem on ARM (doesnât work), no GTK3 support, and removing Banshee 
will remove Mono from the CD (good for the space) and probably from main (which 
make Security team happy, not having to maintain Mono stack for 5 years)
- - RB : U1 store need to be updated, Music lense needs to be updated, it needs a 
release from upstream.
A quick vote on usage of both applications in the room makes approximately a 50 
/ 50 result (maybe a bit more for RB).
Conclusion, RB will probably be back on the CD, if no problem is raised by the 
other teams not present during the session. The decision was not easy, but IMO 
it makes sense in the context of an LTS. And, well, Banshee will still be 
available in the archive, will at least the same level of integration than in 

(Rhythmbox Might Replace Banshee In Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, More News)

"As for the second session, most people who have attended the default 
applications session today at UDS-P have agreed to replace Banshee with 
Rhythmbox by default. However, decision is not final as there are a few things 
that need to be checked first (like Unity Music Lens integration, etc.)."
