As a consequence of adding qt to the default install Canonical ought to drop mono.


That too would be a win for everybody.

As a bonus, they could change the default media player to something like Clementine (which is a Qt application)

http://www.clementine-player.org/

or VLC (which is a Qt application)

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

or even SMPlayer (which is a Qt application)

http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/

... none of which require Mono.
