RMS se (kao i obicno) protivi svemu non-GNU-ovskom:
„In other words, we should discourage people from writing programs in C#. Therefore, we should not include C# implementations in the default installation of GNU/Linux distributions, and we should distribute and recommend non-C# applications rather than comparable C# applications whenever possible.“
Mono – Novell’s implementation of Microsoft’s .NET framework on Linux is an interesting technology. It enables some valuable Linux applications like Tomboy (for note taking) and also raises some interesting legal questions.
Pa cim se Microsoft tu ugura u Linux, ne moze na dobro da izadje…
Gnote is installed by default in GNOME for this release replacing Tomboy. Gnote is a port of Tomboy from Mono to C++ and consumes fewer resources. Gnote is both an applet that can sit in your GNOME panel as well as a individual application you can run within other desktop environments. Fedora Desktop Live CD since the Fedora 10 release has excluded Mono and hence Mono based applications like Tomboy due to lack of space.
