Mono Project "Does GNOME co-founder Miguel de Icaza's backflip over the Novell-Microsoft deal a few days ago mean that he has finally been convinced that he is on a one-way path to nowhere? Has he realised that his own project, Mono, is actually putting GNOME on a development track that can leave it open to patent claims one day? And has he realised that creating Moonlight, a clone of Microsoft's Silverlight, (with which the company hopes to trump Adobe's Flash) is not going to advance the cause of free software one iota?"

Usability and Regression

Well what ever the pros and cons on other issues the author is right about usability and regression. Everytime I have tried Ubuntu there has been some bug or other whether with syncing with my Palm device, sound, or more usually network cards. Network bugs seem to be part of the Ubuntu culture and experience. I have a bug with my current card that has lasted over three releases. Why does no one fix these things!
The process of trying to identify, hack or fix these bugs via the Linux terminal, complicated by sudo, is excruciating! Sorry guys it does not 'just work' like it is supposed to!
