GIMP to go Mono to stay?
Mono sinks its claws into Fedora

| The project has been dogged by controversy
| because many people reason that, as many
| parts of .NET have not been released to
| ECMA, a private standards organisation,
| implementing those parts may lead to patent
| problems down the line.
| In June this year, the Fedora project
| announced that it had decided to get rid of
| Tomboy, a note-taking application dependent
| on Mono and replace it with Gnote, a port
| of Tomboy in C++/Gtkmm released by former
| Novell developer Hubert Figuiere.
| Earlier this year, when Microsoft made what
| appeared to be a promise not to sue those
| who implemented the ECMA-covered parts of
| .NET, de Icaza admitted that he had been
| developing parts of .NET which were not
| covered by the specification, even though
| he had been developing Mono for nearly
| eight years.
