"Given this, I was not surprised at the fuss over the appearance
of Gnote, an application for notes, which was a rewrite of Tomboy.
The difference? Tomboy is dependent on Mono. Gnote is not.
"(For the uninitiated, Mono is an attempt to create an open
source clone of Microsoft's .NET development environment; De Icaza
claims this will pull Windows developers over to GNU/Linux.
Something like my great-aunt who used to claim that she was
regularly visited by the archangel Gabriel.)"
