GTK 3-Sharp and Gstreamer-Sharp

Posted in Microsoft, Mono, Novell at 5:32 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: What Mono proponents are other closet Windows/.NET fans are up tp

A few hours ago Ryan asked, “did you see omgubuntu give Windows 8 a glowing review?”

He also showed Mono promotion (in the form of Banshee news) which ignores the known risks and development impediments. He claims that “they want to make a GTK 3-Sharp and a Gstreamer-Sharp,” later adding that “Rhythmbox isn’t exactly getting a lot of love lately.”

“I think it’s only on life support because Fedora doesn’t want to use Banshee,” he added. When will Canonical get off the Mono dependency? It’s the gateway drug to Microsoft.

We ought to mention that one of the Mono boosters who attacked this site for a long time (trolling the IRC channel, smearing it from afar, etc.) turned out to have been a Microsoft intern. He pretended to be a Ubuntu member. Funny how many Mono people are close to Microsoft but still in disguise, eh?

    It’s not an either-or decision of Rhytmbox or Mono’s Banshee. There are also Amarok, Exaile, and XMMS2 available.
