Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu De kogel is door de kerk. After years of focussing entirely on Gtk+ and GNOME, Ubuntu will finally start evaluating Qt applications for inclusion in the defaukt Ubuntu installation. Mark Shuttleworth announced the policy change on his blog today.

As a consequence of adding qt to the default install Canonical ought to drop mono.

That too would be a win for everybody.

As a bonus, they could change the default media player to something like Clementine (which is a Qt application)

http://www.clementine-player.org/

or VLC (which is a Qt application)

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

or even SMPlayer (which is a Qt application)

http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/

... none of which require Mono.

Neither does the default media player.

[sarcasm]Because MONO is the Evil.[/sarcasm]

http://www.novell.com/products/monotools-for-visualstudio/

Novell (who have a patent agreement with Microsoft) even supply mono development tools to Visual Studio developers ... there is no way Microsoft are now going to start patent infrigments proceedings on Novell.

This Anti-MONO FUD is fuelled more by a hatred towards Microsoft than anything else.
