Mono Project The Mono project has released Mono 2.0. As most of you will know, Mono is an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other operating systems. The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0. The release notes detail all the changes and new features.

And my post shows a way that you can easily have a glorious absence of Mono on your Linux installation, and yet lose no functionality at all.


Really? Strigi doesn't index even half of what Beagle indexes, at least according to their website. I'll give you Amarok, at least until Banshee 1.4 is released (any day now) but I don't like Amarok's interface. In fact I don't like BasKet Note Pads or DigiKam either because the interfaces are much more complex. They have the KDE mentality of "everything and the kitchen sink" that annoys me. To each his own I guess, just leave the Mono issue alone because you're only preaching to the converted. The rest of us couldn't care less.
