Brendan sees Mozilla developing into an open cross-platform alternative to forthcoming Microsoft technologies such as XAML and is looking to collaborate with other open-source projects to make this happen."

You're wrong. Gnome does have a Windows-like registry (though not exactly). <http://www.google.com/sea…ch?q=%22gnome+registry%22> <http://www.google.com/sea….org+%22gnome+registry%22> (I am not going to search for more, work to do)

I also disagree with your opinion about Mono. Miguel has said many times he has been helped (been given information, for example) by Microsoft people... guess why... (hint, hint!: Microsoft wasn't forced, so Mono beneficiates .NET and M$)

I also disagree with your opinion about Gnome beeing less bloated than KDE.

... but after all, I think marcoos is not an enemy, but sort of an ally.
