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.

If you begin to worry about Microsoft and patents, then worry about more than Mono.


i am not going to make a guess on where you stand on the issue... but, who says people *aren't* worried about more than just mono? mono is just the topic at hand.

that being said, there are a couple of points that set this apart from other 'issues'.

* mono is rapidly becoming a default install on many of the big distros, to the chagrin of a growing number of users and developers

* for those who would like to avoid mono, it's good to make opinions heard before too much of the FOSS ecosystem becomes entrenched in something that a lot of people have a problem with. mono is still 'new' enough that it's easy to avoid. a lot of people would like to keep it that way. they should have that option.

people bring up the 'but xxx software package is also controversial' argument all the time. nobody is ignoring the other 'controversies'.
