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.

10+ megs for a note-taking app, plus dependencies? Let me say, there were times not too long ago, when every living coder would've slapped the coder of that one in the face, and hard. But times, they are a'changing, now all I can do is choose not to use it, which is fine with me.

This whole thing smells like a hack to sneak mono into a default mono install with gnome, which - knowing we're talking about Debian here, my favourite from potato on - is quite peculiar. But then again, I use kde, so my only interest is because my Debian preference and my strong anti-mono feelings ;)
