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.

The whole blog post is more anti-Mono nonsense. Utter, utter rubbish.


it wasn't even blatantly anti-mono. the overarching point was: tomboy and its dependencies take up a hell of a lot more room than gnote... so why is tomboy being included as part of a default install?

and furthermore, it's debatable whether or not a note taking app really needs to be in a default install anyway.

it's hardly justification for including mono, which is so hotly debated, as part of a default install, even if there IS a suggested alternative.

i've been a debian user for six years. this is extremely aggravating.
