Ubuntu May Increase Mono-dependent Apps

"Until version 9.04, which was released in April, Ubuntu had two Mono-dependent applications - F-Spot and Tomboy. The former is a picture viewer and the latter a note-taking application.

"A Mono-free port of Tomboy called Gnote was recently created by former Novell developer Hubert using C++/Gtkmm.

"Asked whether there were any plans to include more Mono-dependent applications in future releases, Carr said: "We are not deliberately looking for Mono-based applications but nor are we excluding them because they have that dependency. I think we will add one more (Banshee) in 9.10."

"Banshee is an audio player. The current default for audio on Ubuntu is Rhythmbox while Totem is used for video playback."
