Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

Of those programs, only one of those doesn't have a >= GTK equivalent: GNOME Do.

Probably wouldn't take a year to re-implement it in some other language. Crap, write a mono program that translates to some other language, and use that as a stop-gap.
That's just the worst-case scenario: A patent lawsuit happens, MS wins, and there's no more FOSS C#.
Whoopdie-shit.
