Is Gnome becoming a Microsoft project?
 
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTEzMjM

I'd rather see more Gnome projects using OpenJDK and
http://java-gnome.sourceforge.net/ rather than the .Net clone Mono.

me too. I tried to use mono before, I think Java is more suitable in Linux.

Protip: Don't use phoronix as a reliable news source.

Java? This fat and ugly pig? Must be a joke. Gnome should focus on C/C++
with Vala and Python as supporting languages.

i.e. more realistically:

Hackfest to improve Mono-based applications. The horror!

Somehow this seems relevant once again:

But the theory in there is that folks like M$ are
secretly sabotaging open source. Looks like they are
right out in the open now :-).

Yeah, such a fat and ugly pig that great software like VOIP app Jitsi
(www.jitsi.org) uses it, Vuze P2P uses it, Jdownloader uses it, like
Art of Illusion 3D renderer and Sweet Home 3D uses it
http://www.sweethome3d.com/index.jsp

With OpenJDK7 being GPL and ubiquitous on Linux distros, it's hard to
make a case for NOT using it, specially when non-Java languages can
use it (Jython, JRuby, xRuby, NetRexx, Jabaco...).

If you speak out of ignorance and prejudice, it can also be said that
C/C++ brought us pigs like KDE 4.x which can use up to 500 MB of ram.

Some examples of great Java based cross platform apps:

Jitsi VOIP - messaging - videoconference
http://www.jitsi.org
Art of Illusion 3D renderer
http://aoi.sourceforge.net/
Bloom (pic uploader to Farcebook)

That's exactly the problem... thinking Java is only a programming
language. Java is more than a programming language, it's actually
three things:

1. A programming Language
2. A runtime VM
3. A cross-platform software ecosystem.

Actually, you can write java apps without knowing or touching the Java
programming language, as exemplified by xRuby, Jython, NetRexx
(www.netrexx.org), and Jabaco (www.jabaco.org) just to name a few
examples.
