I think that this article should be merged with the Symphony OS main article - Sleight

I agree, there's nothing in this which isn't in the Symphony OS article, nor is there much there can be given that this is a fairly new piece of work. Perhaps once Mezzo is more established it will deserve its own article, but for now I say merge

P.S I've added the relevant notices to each of the articles concerned. Since there is a section for Mezzo in the Symphony OS article, I put the notice there. Lurker 12:40, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Because Mezzo is also used in the Ubuntu and Debian distros I think it needs to be stay a separate article. --Basique 17:45, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

The consensus on both talk pages does seem to be to keep this as a seperate article, so I'll remove the merging notice. Lurker 09:49, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

"Mezzo is now available as a .deb package" - Is there any evidence or sources showing this? Anything I see says that it used to be offered as a .deb, but that the .deb's are currently outdated and no current ones are available. Also, from SymphonyOS's website, Ryan (project leader) says that sometime in the future he will make a more recent CVS/SVN/Source and .deb available. - lordadonis 7 March 2007

The link to where the white paper may be found has changed. Removed reference to: http://ftp.sun.ac.za/ftp/iso-images/mezzo/MezzoGreypaper.pdf which is a dead link, but saving here for historical reasons; replaced with live link.Hpp3 (talk) 03:37, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
