This is Gnome/Mono speaking, not SUSE

AJ gets completely drowned out by Nat. It seems very disturbing that it's not the SUSE guys speaking here (whom I care about, as a SUSE user) but the Mono guy (about whose agenda I couldn't care less). This stinks. A good distribution is being dragged through the mud by a bunch of rookies with a narrow political agenda.
Jon, good questions. I note they were not answered, which is also not reassuring.
I have been a SUSE User for >8 years now, and I like the guys that made this distro work. I actually know some of them personally. My only consideration in my picking a distro is, do they have a future (enough mindshare/enthusiasm behind the distro), or not. Now I think, maybe not. The wrong people appear to be making the decisions now - this cannot possibly be without repercussions among their developers. What a capitally bad idea.
I will go FC within the next 1-2 days.
