Debian and its clones Well, this is interesting. We already have a Mono item ruffling some feathers on OSNews today, but here we have the apparent news that Tomboy has become a default part of GNOME on Squeeze, the next release of Debian. Wait, what now? Update: I've updated the article with Fedora's position in all this. Read on! Update II: Josselin Mouette replies.

Why not have Mono per default installing on Debian?
Mono is OpenSource and so I don't see any problem.

What warries me a lot more is, that gnuplot is in the Debian main-tree.
And gnuplot http://www.gnuplot.info/ is neither GNU nor OpenSource:

Look at
http://gnuplot.cvs.sourceforge.net/gnuplot/gnuplot/Copyright?view=m...
