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.

I understand this is one of the stated reasons but it doesn't make sense. Microsoft has as much power to "pull the plug" on any piece of FLOSS software as it does Mono.

I don't see that. Mono is an implementation of "their" technology, while must of the other OSS stuff isn't.


I wouldn't be so sure of that. Tomboy is relatively simple as far as Mono applications go.


I don't see where the secret sauce with Mono apps is. They may be faster to develop, but in the end they are just Gtk apps, with no access to any magical libs that would not be available for C++.
