With openSUSE 11.0 GNOME gained a new default BitTorrent client – monsoon. This choice has been met with some criticism, which is fine.
Well the GNOME Team are holding their regular meeting tomorrow Thursday 08 May 2008 @ 1600UTC/GMT/ZULU – or for those not quite with the whole “foreign” time thing try this. One of the themes is the BitTorrent client, why am I saying this? Well for all those that have an opinion about it, please come along and let everyone know what that is, yes there may be a chance to get on your soap box and denounce the world and it’s dog, and we can have a real-time discussion about it. If you don’t tell someone (preferably someone that makes decisions) then no one knows and nothing happens, filing bugs also helps 😉
A bit of background reading on why the choice of monsoon was made can be found here – yes I did indeed do the initial review of clients and made the recommendation, and I’m sticking to it! I did however get others to test it to confirm I’m not 100% insane. As with all applications your mileage may vary, but we are intent in trying to make your mileage be the same great journey as one would expect from openSUSE. So if you care, join in and you never know you may bring something to the table that no one thought of 😉
