Yeah, why not writing applications in Basic, Bash or some line interpreted script language or something. Hey, we seek for professional stuff and not a collection of different languages. I and probably most others here don't want to have 100mb of Mono, 50mb of Python, 50mb of Ruby, 50mb of Java installed only to run the one or other application that depends on it.

Why not? In Windows most people are running applications written in at least C, C++, VB and Delphi. On OS X people are running applications written in C++, Obj-C, Obj-C++ and Java. And OS X includes Python and Perl out of the box so they're there whether or not you use them.

Of course you're just trolling (as usual) and don't care about what other people are doing.

I think the majority of us readers and users of GNOME want to have a consistent Desktop written throughly in one language.

I think you don't know what you're talking about. That's not something which is realistic to expect on any operating system.

The bindings or language stuff can be an addition ontop of it for those who want it. I think exactly this is one of the main concerns in the head of many people. The more they hear people like you talking about Python, Ruby, Mono, Java, <add whatever here> the more you do to get rid of people. Atm as it looks like GNOME is more of a construction lot for experiments than a serious Desktop Environment.

If only their choices would drive you away so we don't need to listen to your uninformed drivel. Please, go away and stop posting this nonsense.

I have to agree with you that the development language really doesn't matter. However, the previous poster would probably agree with me in saying that languages do play a part.
If I have 2 different apps that are relatively similar, one written in C/C++ and the other in, say, Ruby, then I would probably opt for the C/C++ app just so I won't have to install Ruby libs and have to maintain updates for yet another package.
