Gnome "About half a year ago I was looking around me and seeing stagnation in the GNOME community. I was concerned that GNOME had lost its momentum and that we were just making boring incremental releases that added very little new functionality. I think I was very wrong. I'd like to take this time to list some things that are happening right now in the GNOME community that have me very excited. These are the projects that are actively improving the future of the GNOME desktop." Let's hope a punctuation checker will be part of GNOME too. One Aaron is enough.

GCC and mono are different beasts. GCC compiles native code where as mono/java dont - Vala will be compiled C code with no odd runtime dependencies like java and mono.

Vala seems roughly comparable shedskin* or GCC's java compiler - GCJ, which compiles binaries but youll find its not used by many projects compared to sun's java.

* shedskin is python -> C++
