Red Hat/Fedora Deliver GNOME Without the Mono

Posted in GNOME, GNU/Linux, Microsoft, Mono, Novell, Red Hat at 1:24 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Fedora 12 with GNOME

Summary: GNOME 2.30 is out and Fedora leaves Tomboy out of the loop

F

edora rejects Mono and Moonlight, so with the new release of GNOME the following observations surface, thanks to an exchange of information with Stormy Peters:

Not all Linux distributions that use GNOME choose to include the application, however. Fedora Linux, for example, has moved to the gNote application as a substitute for Tomboy. Tomboy relies on the Novell-led Mono effort, which provides .NET functionality on Linux, but which has raised eyebrows of some in the Linux community due to its connection to Microsoft technology and intellectual property.

“The Tomboy and gNote projects are different teams,” Peters said. “Tomboy is also working on Tomboy Online, which will be a Web service capable of hosting your notes so you can access them from multiple locations.”

Opponents of Gnote (mostly Mono bullies and Novell employees) have been spreading the rumour that Gnote is dead, but it's doing just fine. It works a lot better than Tomboy and Fedora has been using it for almost a year.

  4. Gemini is Bigger Than Most People Care to Realise

    Geminispace has gotten to the point where it's too computationally expensive (or outright pricey) to study, let alone keep abreast of, Gemini capsules or the domain space as a whole

  6. [Meme] UPC is Always Next Year (and Next Year It'll Surely be the Year After That)

    The UPC will come “next year”, just like every year (since almost a decade ago) just because the lunatic promises so and crushes the law, quite frankly as usual, cusioned and protected by the UPC lobby



  7. UPC: Turning Patent Lawyers Into Liars and the Media Into Their Money-Grabbing Megaphone (Platform for Fake News)

    The above 26 screenshots (with necessary annotation added) hopefully illuminate the degree of deceit, manipulation, bribery and distortion of public discourse (fake news and advocacy of patently unlawful activities)



  8. Number of Working/Online Gemini Capsules, Known to Totally Legit Gemini Search (TLGS) and to Lupa, Exceeds 2,500

    Assuming that Lupa reduced its crawling capacity (this graph seems to confirm this), we’ve decided to aggregate data from 3 sources and assess the size of Geminispace; Lupa says it can see 1,947 active capsules, but there are many more it has not kept track of



  9. [Meme] Monopoly Tony

    The gentlest, kindest president the EPO ever had



  10. It Took Campinos Three or More Years to Undo Illegal Battistelli Actions on Boards of Appeal and Strike Regulations (Only After Losing at ILO-AT!), But He Does Not Mention That

    Let’s all remember that as the EPO‘s so-called ‘President’ António Campinos (Monopoly Tony) vigorously defended completely unlawful actions of Benoît Battistelli until courts compelled him to stop doing that (Strike Regulations); notice how, in the video above — a portion of this full clip from several months ago — he did not bother mentioning that for 3.5 years that he had “led” the Office the Boards of Appeal were in exile, in direct violation of the EPC, yet nobody is being held accountable for it

  20. Outsourcing Sites to Social Control Media is an Outdated Mindset in 2022

    Centralised or federated censorship/filtering platforms (also known as "social [control] media" [sic]) aren't the way forward; we're therefore a little surprised that Linux Weekly News (LWN) bothers with that languishing bandwagon all of a sudden

  29. EPO Eating Its Own (and Robbing Its Own)

    António Campinos is lying to his staff and losing his temper when challenged about it; Like Benoît Battistelli, who ‘fixed’ this job for his banker buddy (despite a clear lack of qualifications and relevant experience), he’s just robbing the EPO’s staff (even pensioners!) and scrubbing the EPC for ill-gotten money, which is in turn illegally funneled into financialization schemes



  30. [Meme] EPO Budget Tanking?

    While the EPO‘s António Campinos incites people (and politicians) to break the law he’s also attacking, robbing, and lying to his own staff; thankfully, his staff isn’t gullible enough and some MEPs are sympathetic; soon to follow is a video and publication about the EPO’s systematic plunder (ETA midnight GMT)
