"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."
