Because of several issues regarding licensing, patent traps, Microsoft, Silverlight, and so on, I’ve completely remove mono from my Kubuntu desktop, and all associated applications (that where none as far as I can tell).
So there it is. You can live without .NET on free platforms.
PS: By the way, I’ve notice something very, very funny: Miguel de Icaza blog is: tirania.org. (Never read it or be there…)
Well in Portuguese tirania is a word that defines an opressive regime, dictatorship… Coincidence?
