'''API Domination'''

-
Monsoon is a bittorrent client which uses monotorrent library. Mono people can try to include Monsoon as part of a default GNOME installation. Mono promoter; OpenSUSE already includes monsoon and Banshee in its GNOME installations.

+
-
'''Bad Licence'''
+
-
 
+
-
Monsoon and monotorrent use the MIT/X11 licence. It's not good for GNU/Linux to promote licences with weak copyleft; instead use GNU GPLv3 or copyleft licenses. And MIT/X11 is not good for protecting projects against software patents.

Revision as of 08:03, 18 September 2011

Consider reading this old summary to learn why Mono is still bad or this newer primer with instructions on how to remove Mono.

Mononono is an advised solution to prevent Mono from cropping up in a system. If you are using Gentoo, just add the line dev-lang/mono to the file /etc/portage/package.mask and add "-mono" to your USE flags in /etc/make.conf.

For Arch Linux, add mono and libgdiplus to the IgnorePkg section of /etc/pacman.conf. You will get the following message when installing the group gnome-extra: "Do you want to skip the above package(s) for this upgrade?" Just say yes and anything depending on Mono won't be installed.

The following are vectors of Mono infection, according to Wikipedia, which attempt to replace legitimate applications and need to be removed:
