Legal So, Google has finally officially responded (thanks for hosting, Engadget) to Oracle's patent and copyright infringement lawsuit against the search giant's Android mobile operating system. Apart from boatloads of pages on how Google pretty much denies any and all claims, there's a lot of interesting stuff in there - stuff that doesn't seem to bode well if the courts do decide Google is infringing Oracle's patents. It also makes it crystal clear that anyone who values Free and open source software should avoid Oracle products like the plague.

I dont like Mono too and I hate the fact that its included in Meego, however:

1) The inclusion of Mono has nothing to do with Meego losing the plot

2) I guess sooner or later Meego will drop it too. As soon as they have a proper replacement for Banshee.

There is already proper replacement for banshee. Amarok for example. It is even QT-based, old Nokia's favorite.

But reason why new Nokia is pushing Mono, is Stephan Elop. ExMicrosoftie who is now Nokia's CEO. He will probably kill MeeGo because of Microsoft Jihad against Linux. Also, more Microsoft intruders are coming to Nokia. Chief of MeeGo group got fired (or quited after seeing writing on the wall).

I am an Amarok user and im already using it. But, is Amarok ready to be included in Meego? Amarok has KDE dependency, which is NOT included in Meego.

I wish Meego uses more KDE technologies, but they arent currently doing so.
