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.

i made it exceptionally clear that it should not be installed by default because MANY people have MANY reasons to avoid it. enough of a critical mass of people NOT wanting mono to justify NOT including it by default.


No there's not. There's a vocal minority of trolls (like yourself) who keep insisting that Mono should not be included in a default installation regardless of what applications are excluded because of it. No sound arguments are ever produced to back this position up.

Why don't you start you own distribution? That way you can make sure that there's no Mono in the default installation, and you'd be free to use second-best-of-breed applications (gthumb, rhythmbox, gnote) all you want.
