Gnome inches closer to microsoft (with mono)

Posted 04-06-2009 at 04:08 PM by Dubious Dave

I've been a user of Gnome since FC1 and just never had a reason to try another desktop. I starting using Linux initially, because windows was so infuriatingly bad. Now it's all about not being forced to use a microsoft product. However, the inclusion of mono in a number of gnome applications bothers me. You can remove mono from your system now, but maybe in the future you can't. Been thinking about KDE lately though. It's starting to look real good. Now gnome has announced this new Gnome Shell and Gnome Zeitgeist as the future of gnome. Zeitgeist uses Tomboy. Tomboy uses mono. Hmm,.... Some Zeitgeist news talkbacks have mono fanboys begging them to use more mono. Gnome project leaders seem to embrace mono. I think I could get used to KDE, hmm,... maybe we could get the major distros to switch to KDE. I know I will.
