Red Hat/Fedora Deliver GNOME Without the Mono

Fedora 12 with GNOME

Summary: GNOME 2.30 is out and Fedora leaves Tomboy out of the loop


edora rejects Mono and Moonlight, so with the new release of GNOME the following observations surface, thanks to an exchange of information with Stormy Peters:

Not all Linux distributions that use GNOME choose to include the application, however. Fedora Linux, for example, has moved to the gNote application as a substitute for Tomboy. Tomboy relies on the Novell-led Mono effort, which provides .NET functionality on Linux, but which has raised eyebrows of some in the Linux community due to its connection to Microsoft technology and intellectual property.

"The Tomboy and gNote projects are different teams," Peters said. "Tomboy is also working on Tomboy Online, which will be a Web service capable of hosting your notes so you can access them from multiple locations."

Opponents of Gnote (mostly Mono bullies and Novell employees) have been spreading the rumour that Gnote is dead, but it's doing just fine. It works a lot better than Tomboy and Fedora has been using it for almost a year.
