Debian may include Mono in default install

Filed under

The Debian GNU/Linux distribution may include Mono in its default install, with the project leader Steve McIntyre telling iTWire today that "there's a chance that it might do, but it's under discussion at the moment."

There was no discussion about the matter on any of the Debian mailing lists when I last looked at around 4am AEST today, just before entering the land of Nod.

However, discussion has taken place on the blog of one Debian developer, Robert Millan, after he made a post pointing out that another developer, Josselin Mouette, had apparently decided that Mono should be part of the default installation for the next Debian release, Squeeze.

Millan's post has so far drawn around 70 responses and comes close on the heels of Mono advocate and Jo Shields posting a long essay on the Linux Today website, arguing in favour of including the open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET implementation in GNU/Linux distributions, and specifically in Ubuntu.

His essay was posted following an invitation from the LT editor Carla Schroder to anyone who wanted to argue the merits of Mono, to submit their thoughts.
