Debian and its clones Last week we talked about whether or not the Debian project would include Mono in its default GNOME installation. This incited some heavy debate on OSNews, but sadly, the Mono debate also lead to some very nasty blog posts in the Debian community. Time for damage control, Debian project leader Steve McIntyre must've thought.

I was responding specifically to the claim that Mono is not chasing .NET.


Ok, but the relevant parts (the parts that are used by desktop linux applications) aren't chasing .NET. Therefor, whether or not Mono is chasing .NET is orthogonal to the question at hand.

Vuze (Azureus) and a lot of developers are rather fond of Eclipse.


I've never used it, so I have no first-hand knowledge but judging from screenshots it doesn't appear to integrate well with the desktop. I have yet to find a Java-app that does.

Gtk (and subsequently Gtk#) doesn't integrate that will with desktop either, unless the desktop happens to be Gnome.

Which, incidentally, is the desktop that's being discussed. Tomboy is a native GNOME application, and noone is suggesting that it be included by default in any other desktop environment.
