How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter


"I speak for myself here - not for the Debian project, nor Ubuntu, not for the Mono project, nor for my employer.

"I am a member of the Debian Mono Group, Debian CLI Applications Team, and Debian CLI Libraries Team. I've been working on packaging for the Mono stack and applications which make use of it in Ubuntu (and Debian) for just under a year. And, fully aware of the flame war, threats and personal attacks which will follow, I'm going to take you up on your "invitation". I speak for myself here - not for the Debian project, nor Ubuntu, not for the Mono project, nor for my employer.

"Your request was for "a calm presentation of why Mono is desirable, why it is not a threat, and why it should be included in Ubuntu by default". I'll answer these three questions individually, then offer a general comment on your post, as well as the wider "anti-Mono" movement. This message is GPG-signed to ensure it is published unedited. The message as-sent will be made available at http://retro.apebox.org/herewegoagain.txt to allow people to verify authenticity signatures themselves."
