There's a long running "discussion" about whether Mono and apps written in .NET/C# should be included, nay- used, in Linux. Apparently, Richard Stallman doesn't think so... [Thanks to Slashdot for the reminder] He doesn't really go into the details as to why, but rather appears to be using his "status" to be enough justification to his argument.
If you are open minded and not simply a Microsoft basher, check out this fantastic explanation on Why Mono Doesn't Suck to hear the other side of the story. Then make up your own mind.
Me? I love my Tomboy!!
As a former Sysadmin for a multitude of Unix varieties I was often hit with the task of adhering to some governing policy regarding lockdown or hardening of the O/S's that I administered. One of the more challenging was compliance with DISA UNIX STIGs. If you've ever had this task, you'll know that there are three components (the STIG policy document, the SRR scripts, and a manual checklist). There was never an automated way of getting the O/S in compliance, and worse, an automated way to ensure compliance as the servers evolved over time. This rather mundane task (finding, editing, and checking a series of configuration files, CHMODs, and the like) quickly became a daily "chore". Keeping servers in-sync with one another was a task in itself and making mistakes while editing O/S configuration files could set you back a day or two.
Check out the newly launched Linux.com site run by the Linux Foundation. It would be nice if their vision came true...
SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2009 — The Linux Foundation (LF), the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced the formal launch of Linux.com. The Foundation took over stewardship of the site in March, at which time it began soliciting input from the community to help define the new Linux.com via its Ideaforge web tool. Today, it unveils the results of that input and a new online home for all things Linux.
The new Linux.com will connect Linux users and developers, and by showcasing their skills through its guru listing, will connect individuals to jobs and collaboration opportunities. Instead of a static information site, the new Linux.com will empower the Linux community to share its knowledge, get questions answered, download the right software and find hardware to solve problems.
