Mono Project Sure, everyone knows Tomboy, F-spot, Beagle, MonoDevelop, Muine, Blam! or Monodoc. But there are a lot of other interesting Mono/GTK# applications out there that need your attention. Join us for a quick listing of the not-so-well-known GTK# apps and you will witness yourself that the platform is flourishing.

Not to diss Mono, but a good alternative is Java-Gnome. It can also use GCJ to compile native binaries. This way, one doesn't need a runtime. Glade also works for it and I believe integrates far better than in Mono (however Mono will have it's own RAD tool soon). Another advantage is that Eclipse is far more mature than Monodevelop. Sadly, it's not as hugely backed or hyped by Red Hat (I think 1 person) as Mono is by Novell. Documentation is lacking and there aren't as many apps as for Mono. And of course, there are those people that say since Java is by Sun it's as big of a bet as Mono.
