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.

Mono Flaming

Mono is a nice development environment which I used successfully for some projects.

Being afraid of patents isn't an argument in my opinion. There are patents everywhere, and in the case of mono the biggest part is even kinda protected because it is a part of the ecma standard. (And as a developer I have to say, that the non ecma part like System.Windows.Forms aren't attractive on linux anyway so you don't use them).
