One of the best things GNOME now can do is to integrate Mono as a standard base technology so M$ can see and learn how .Net can be fully integrated into Windowing Technologies.


The best thing Gnome could do would be to port Beagle to some language that is not subject to so many inflamed discussions. Mono will not be part of standard Gnome for a very long time, if ever. No matter on how good it is or will be.

Please, please, please pass this on to the Fedora people. They may even include it in the distro, since they won't touch Mono.

I think the core of GNOME should stay in C. I like the way there are bindings for mono, c++, python, java... I do think they should focus on making these binding top notch, and documenting them. This is one of the many reason I prefer GNOME over KDE.

The core libraries should stay in C for that reason, but for parts of the user interface, using a VM might make sense at some point. Python can already be used for tools, but for something as integral as the panel it would probably not be a good choice. Of course many will say that Mono or Java won't ever be a good choice either, but I'm sure realism will catch them sooner or later. ;)
