Hi Matt,

Have you ever used banshee, f-spot and beagle ? They are all
interesting projects but the software still lacks stability even
containing a lot of cool features. I remember all the hype around
beagle to be the first included as default, requests everywhere but
the software itself as it's today can't satisfy the users needs (best
UI radical changes, stability as i said and more), IMHO. I hope
Fedora's decision don't make the users hate these projects, and help
them (maybe others too) to reach their goals faster.

There's no doubt that softwares like OO and FireFox can be unstable in
a lot of use cases, but in my experience as user and the feedback i
have from friends is that the current situation is worse when you use
stuff like beagle. It's changing fast and i hope to see some of mono
stuff (as default) in dapper+1.
