Debian and its clones Well, this is interesting. We already have a Mono item ruffling some feathers on OSNews today, but here we have the apparent news that Tomboy has become a default part of GNOME on Squeeze, the next release of Debian. Wait, what now? Update: I've updated the article with Fedora's position in all this. Read on! Update II: Josselin Mouette replies.

Omg that is so racist. I'm actually a game developer and long time linux user who is incredibly sick of pointless anti mono rubbish. But bringing ethnicity into this is really below the belt! I've made my pro mono arguements several times, and I'm over caring. But this kind of flame mongering should be above osnews

Racist? You really are insane. What percentage of the world speaks English? Saying someone doesn't appear to understand anything that is being said is not racist it is very possible in general based on language barriers. Just making a snide point that you may or may not speak english based on your previous post is not racist, it is just pointing out that you obviously didn't absorb one word of the blog post or anyone else's points.



5) Mono "haters" point out that mono fans don't appear to be listening or playing nice at all. Reasonable and calm mono fans accuse "haters" of being racist because the "hater" uses a random example of a country where some people may not speak English.

I swear people like you are just sitting in a call center in india

That's the racist part, when you make the inference that because his english might not be good that he works in a call center in India. Does that mean that anyone in India that doesn't speak proper English works in a call center? It couldn't possibly be a multi phd holding engineer. Its the equivalent of a non-english speaker assuming you must be a red neck moonshiner from Appalachia because your french sucks.

Apparently you did not understand that his post was not anti-, or pro-mono but anti-whining. Your English skills seems a bit lacking, maybe you should go to India and improve them?
