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.

Adding 50mb to the default install for a note taking app is just insane and the Debian people will know better and include the much smaller alternative (if a note app is really needed.)


How small does it need to be? How about 11mb?

That's how much Tomboy (and all its required Mono dependencies) actually bring in:

Of course, one can argue that that is too much, but at least we're arguing about the actual numbers and not some made-up ones.
