Debian and its clones Well, this is interesting. We already have a Mono item ruffling some feathers on OSNews today, but here we have the apparent news that Tomboy has become a default part of GNOME on Squeeze, the next release of Debian. Wait, what now? Update: I've updated the article with Fedora's position in all this. Read on! Update II: Josselin Mouette replies.

You did get that wrong. The GNOME 3.0 Shell is based on JavaScript and GObjectIntrospection.

Hey, thanks for the information! I'm actually very relieved now. I'm not a GNOME User, but I use Gtk+ as my widget set of choice and I'm sure it would take a severe blow if the GNOME Community went through turbulent times because, having to rewrite major portions of it's desktop.

I wish I could mod you informative.

Anywyas, now I just hope they'll end up throwing a good FAST Javascript engine to the game, and I'll be just happy.

Although I would prefer if someone simply wrote a front end to CSharp's Standardized language to, say, parrot, just so we could port C#+Gtk# apps without relying on any piece of .Net technology other than the language grammar.

Can language grammars be patented?
