Mono is already included on the default installation of Ubuntu Edgy betas, and Slab is written in C. I personally don't like the usability of the new slab menu. It seems like it brings the problems with the Windows start menu and combines them with the problems of the Mac menu. To me personally, it feels like the worst of both worlds. I love the current menu, which feels like a much improved version of the Windows start menu. Some quick launch applications at the top of the menu would be nice, but I think its important to keep the fast and easy menu categorization for all program, including the lesser used programs, and not hiding them away in another window like OS X does. I love the current menu and hope that the slab menu is rejected by the community. Usability wise, it feels horrible to me. Sure, it does look good and have all of the next generation features, but thats about it. I hope it gets revamped to make launching applications that aren't pinned easier and have better categorization of everything.
