“Much has been written about the fact that the next
version of Ubuntu, Natty Narwhal, will switch its interface from
GNOME to Canonical’s own Unity interface.

“Little has been said about the plan to introduce a
Mono-dependent application, Banshee, as the default music
player.

“This is yet to be finalised; it is dependent on the application
fitting into a single CD, along with the rest of the
distribution.

“Mono is an attempt to reproduce some parts of Microsoft’s .NET
development environment as an open source offering. It has been
said more than once, and by more than one authority, that it may
could well pose patent dangers to developers as it is core
technology from Microsoft.”
