Mono Project We've already seen some heavy discussion on Mono and C# here on OSNews the past few weeks, as it became clear the patent situation regarding the ECMA parts of Mono was anything but faith inspiring. This issue seems to be resolved now: Microsoft has made a legally binding promise not to sue anyone who uses or distributes implementations of said ECMA standards. Following this news, Mono will be split in two; the ECMA standard parts, and the rest.

Except Amarok has vertical tabs, for which its developers will be sent to hell.

And of course, he was talking about the GNOME desktop.


Of course he was talking about the GNOME desktop.

What he said (when you boil it down) was that in some cases, if you want the best applications for GNOME, then you must have Mono installed ... and I agree ... and what I then went on to say was that if you want equivalent good applications for Linux, without Mono dependencies, then the thing to do is switch your desktop to KDE4.

I tried to be brief ... but some people try to twist your meaning when you do that ... so if you want me always to ramble on with long explanations like the above, Thom, then you are going the right way about it.
