Editorial "I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?"

Having Mono around is a good thing because it means programs get developed quicker, and that there are more programs to choose from

Is that true? Or is it propaganda? Beagle, a Novell project which uses Mono and had the indexing framework, the core of the project, handed to them on a silver platter in the form of Apache Lucene, which only had to be ported from jave, is currently being passed up by the small and unsponsored team of developers working on Tracker, and writing in C. Mono needs some actual evidence to back the "faster development" hype. And the current line-up of Mono apps does not provide that. Quite the contrary.
