[Mono-list] Mono 2.6 for Ubuntu

Are we talking about a commercial build of Mono for Ubuntu? If not this 
is very simple, if you are needing business support you need to purchase 
a commercial build, which if you are using this for a commercial project 
is not too much to ask. If you are not using it for business and you are 
having problems report the problem and move on. If you think it can be 
better then help the kind people who work everyday to make Mono.

This is how non-commercial Linux works if you don't like it you are 
politely invited to help, this is no different than anything else done 
in non-commercial Linux. If you don't mind I'll just say think you to 
the people who work on Mono (non-commcial) for me to use and the nice 
people at Ubuntu who work had bringing us Ubuntu. If I have a problem 
I'll report the bug in the correct bug reporting manner. Giving the 
non-commercial developers and packagers a hard time via email list 
doesn't help.

Sorry the first thing I said on this list is negative but someone need 
to stand up for those who work hard everyday.
