Oh the 80ties/90ties when Java was invented and was used by
more people then Turbo Pascal in no time, I said the same...It was
closed source, and had too much of Sun in it..

"Boycottnovell" is not the truth of the world...really. I do understand
the concerns, and yes, they are all very known...but's your
choice to accept the way Ubuntu is doing or your don''s your
Our Desktop Team choose MONO and some apps as default installation
candidates and that was their choice and we live with it...if you can't
live with it...then don't use it. 

Linux is about choice...we choose.
