Mono Project The tomato war between Red Hat, Novell and the developer Gnome community about Mono and its legal safety continued today. Novell's Nat Friedman and Miguel de Icaza replied to yesterday's editorial by Red Hat's Seth Nickell. Later, Red Hat's Havoc Pennington replied to Nat and Gnome's Andrew Sobala also threw a few (metallic) cents too. For future episodes, bookmark PlanetGnome (unverified rumors circulating on IRC claim that eggs might be used next if there is no sign of their lawyers meeting with Microsoft to try to give an end to the saga). In any case, you don't want to miss this.

Performance

"And don't forget that gtk+ is slow enough the way it is without it being bogged down with Python."

Yes, Python is slow. Psyco notwithstanding. But I am sure anything that will be able to run Longhorn with all eyecandies, will be able to run Python/GTK+/Cairo/etc without any problems. Performance will be getting less important on Desktop. By the way, isn't C faster than Java or .NET? So why not write everything in C?

That is not to say Python need speedup seriously. Give Python half the support Mono enjoys and it will be done. Better, support Parrot project.
