This is just a comment. I appreciate the developers work - this is to
them, not lurkers.
I am required to use an unmodified centrist distro - CentOS(3-4).
Centrist distros not only do not have cutting edge libraries, they never
will. As long as developers use cutting edge libraries - centrist
distros are bypassed. I dont recall having these issues wtih Unix.
Perhaps its a consequence of community developement - after all who
could reasonably ask someone that has donated time to use older
libraries. (Either developers simply choose to use the latest libs -
which arent available to unmodified distos - or they need functionality
that isnt available otherwise, which speaks to the immaturity of linux
in general. - I know that happens in some cases)
The punch line is - while I had planned to - I cant use monodevelop
(or most other things - anjuta or 'fixed - nondeprecated' gnome/gtk+ etc
I often wonder if issues like this are one of the reasons that linux
hasnt been more broadly adopted than it has. I am not a fan of windows,
but I have never had this problem with windows.
As I said, just a comment. You have a smaller audience than you might
otherwise wish. (Its not just you, it seems to be pervasive from the
gnome/gtk folks up). Sorry, I am just bummed. I can smell windows in my
thanks for the work
