Gnote Enters Debian, UbuntuOne Has No Mono



Summary: Gnote penetrates distributions at the speed of lightning

seraphyn adds: "Surely better than the mono-litter on !debian. I dislike mono"

This was probably inevitable and Ubuntu might soon swing the same way. Fedora already has it as well, not to mention Debian Sid.

“Fedora already has it as well, not to mention Debian Sid.”Someone wrote about Novell's iFolder and Mono in relation to UbuntuOne, stating wrongly that "The client side seems to be free software and based in mono."

This is not correct. If one looks at the source code, then it's clearly all wrong.

The problem with Mono is old news to many. Applying some simple logic and considering what's at stake, here is one way to put it. To repeat a message I sent elsewhere, if Microsoft hates something, it means it's bad for Microsoft. Examples may include GNU/Linux advocacy, critics, and law enforcement. When Microsoft assists something, it's means it's good Microsoft. It might help to think along the lines Mono, Moonlight, OOXML plug-ins, Hyper-V support, and SLE*.

Microsoft openly states (both Ballmer and Ozzie) that open source and/or GNU/Linux are the biggest threats to Microsoft.

Does anyone really think Microsoft will help its biggest threats?

Microsoft is a business. It operates for shareholders. It works to defeat its competitive threats.

This is obvious, but Mono and Novell apologists just ignore the warning signs. Microsoft has already sued Linux (probably SCO to an extent, then TomTom, maybe others). What more proof does one need that Microsoft does battle this so-called "cancer" and so-called "IP" is its weapon of choice? It's only rational to react responsively.
