schestowitzWe need to pressure Canonical.There are distributors that prebundle mono and feed it to people who don't understand it and get 'addicted'/locked in to mono apps. Ubuntu is a good example. They stink it up with Mono everywhere... but it's done innocently.Nov 16 00:44
MinceRpressure them.Nov 16 00:45
neighborleewhat makes matters worse, is they lock away these 'threadss' in recurring discussions where few regullar users goNov 16 00:45

schestowitzIt's natural to want to protect it and the truth is not convenient.Nov 16 01:16

neighborleejust like an inconvenient truth and al gore...few wanted to admit it as it gets too deep into their pocket book , yadda.Nov 16 01:17
schestowitz[because .NET is visible now... the code, I mean]Nov 16 01:17
neighborleeyeah...M$ said they would NEVER release source for .net, so to think anyone would base software on it to me is laughableNov 16 01:18
schestowitzThe oil companies twit Gore smears and have them passed on.Nov 16 01:18

neighborleeI wonder if any poor unsuspecting birds, fell from such displays of righteous power ;)Nov 16 01:40
schestowitzSome people in LXer, unlike Linux Today, still defend Novell and Mono. I wrote about 300 posts protesting against patents (I just didn't propose them to LXer), so they accuse me of wrong things (well, the minority does).  There's a wide variety of topics in BN... people just cherry-pick what they dislike to discredit the site. *sigh*Nov 16 01:41
schestowitzIn the later parts they observe the "invaders" (i.e. tourists)Nov 16 01:42
schestowitzIt's hilarious.Nov 16 01:42

schestowitzOne first stop is to choose software that is not distributed by Novell.Nov 16 09:41
schestowitzThe next step is urging others to do the same. Only if Novell is pressured for harming Free software will it possible change its colours.Nov 16 09:42
Killer-Xbut isnt Novell a Industrial OS thingNov 16 09:42
Killer-XIndustrial Purchasing cant be stoppedNov 16 09:43

Killer-Xi dont have right to complainNov 16 09:44
