[News] Beagle and Ballnux: More Mono?

Open letter to OpenSUSE users [about Beagle]

| * We would be extremely happy if beagle only used C# for all its operations.
| Unfortunately, we have to depend on a lot of C libraries for indexing certain
| files. Sometimes memory leaks (the C type) and segmentation faults happen in
| them. These are harder to spot since mono does not know about the memory
| allocated in the C libraries.

| Once the source code for Android is released, it would be interesting to look 
| into integrating Mono wiht it. It should already run on it, as its just 
| Linux. What would be interesting is continuing to use C# to write code for 
| it.

| I read the agreement between Xandros and Microsoft, and one of the excluded 
| products was Mono, so Microsoft promises to not sue Xandros over their 
| distribution but excluding Mono and a few other products, i.e. they reserve 
| the right to sue over Mono. I wonder if this is an interesting preview of on 
| what basis they want to fight the free world.    
| Interestingly, the Novell deal seems to be different, Mono is not excluded 
| from the Novell deal. So Microsoft seems to be promising not to sue Novell 
| over Mono, but keeps the option open for Xandros. Weird but true.

| is Mono's role in the deal that of a hook to make customers write
| .NET applications because they can be run on Linux - only to find
| later on that they are armless or legless because of a change in
| the .NETspecifications, a change which Microsoft decides not to
| make public?
| [...]
| And here we have an individual who decides to replicate one of
| the proprietary company's development environments - for reasons
| best known to him alone - and keeps telling people that the reason
| he's doing it is so that he can pull people over from the
| proprietary company's side to his side!!!
