So I’ve been following the saga of Tomboy Notes (and subsequently Mono) being
added to the Debian
On the surface, it seems fairly harmless, and part of that is because I not only
use Tomboy, but I enjoy it. As part of the ongoing saga, Richard M. Stallman
(RMS) has spoken out against the
inclusion because .NET is not free software.
Regardless of where this all falls, I have to come out and say that RMS makes me
want to be a better person. So much so, that I even gave
gNewSense a once over to perhaps alleviate my
shackles towards non-free software. Well, as much as I want to be a better
person, and I may even give up Tomboy / any other Mono apps for that matter, I
don’t see me using an operating system that doesn’t seem to handle my wireless
card when I boot up the Live CD. I’m hoping to give
Gobuntu a try soon, I’m
assuming it will work better than gNewSense out of the box.
So yeah, RMS is definitely a better person than I… for now.
Oh, and for the record,
