Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

Fedora removing Mono apps from their distro is a JOKE!!. Tomboy for gnote (reinventing the wheel?). What are they paranoid!?. Their is nothing wrong with Tomboy!. It is going to be real interesting come Fedora 12 time. The guy who develops Rhythm Box is packing it up. So now you can do what Ubuntu does and include Banshee (Mono app) or develop you own Media player like Novell did. Oh and the new artwork is plain bland. Same old theme, icons, as in previous three past fedoras, and horrible wallpaper!. Doesn't even come close to openSuse, or MacOSX in terms of beauty!. Their art department is also a JOKE!!.

removing a piece of controversial software from a default install while keeping it available in the repos to those who desire it is a joke? the funny thing is, the fedora developers seem to have removed tomboy from the default install to make room on the livecd more than for any sort of "paranoia". thankfully, they have also responded to the community, and are taking into consideration the possible legal issues surrounding mono, as well. it's the most responsible and respectful thing they could do, considering all of the rational complaints people have about mono. and here you are, blathering on about aesthetics.

yes, a joke, indeed. ha. ha ha. high-larious.

if you don't like fedora, don't use it. you obviously do not share the concerns and opinions of the people developing fedora; and, you certainly aren't the target end-user.

Agreed. Keep mono and mono apps in the repos for people who want to use them, but keep them out of the default install on the live CD's and DVD.
