Mono Project For the most time, I've been firmly in the largest camp when it comes to the Mono debate - the 'I don't care'-camp. With patent lawsuits being hotter than Lady Gaga right now, that changed. For good reason, so it seems; while firmly in the 'ZOMG-MICROSOFT-IS-T3H-EVILL!1!!ONE!'-camp, The-Source.com investigated the five most popular Mono applications, and the conclusion is clear: all of them implement a lot of namespaces which are not covered by Microsoft's community promise thing.

"... it is 4 each for GNOME and KDE by default.
Well yes, if you don't actually look at the numbers. but if you do, you'll notice that the KDE distros tend to be down the bottom of that top-10, and the Gnome distros towards the top. Proportionately, the numbers are about 2-1... "

Perhaps in numbers of users, but that is not what the OP was talking about. The original statement was, and I quote:
and most distros default to GNOME


This is the point which is debatable. After all, in terms of having applications written and ready to ship with distributions, the number of distributions is more important than the number of users of distributions.

The point stands. There are an equal number of top-10 Linux distributions shipping KDE applications by default as there are shipping GNOME applications by default.
