Editorial "I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?"

Sure, one day Microsoft might kick up a stink, but what does it matter when it's only non-trivial programs that are written using Mono?

I don't follow. If the programs written in Mono are non-trivial, wouldn't that make it worse if MS decided to make trouble?

And besides, when Vala is ready you'll be able to port Mono programs to Gnome without having to worry about this.

True, theoretically. But that's still a lot of effort. I don't think you'll see a lot of people porting Mono apps to Vala in a hurry.
