But this thread is about Gnome. If you have such a marginal interest, why bother? And why o why is there a need to bring a gorilla in your precius server environment for daily scripting?

I'll find another sticky note app if one of my 'clients' says so, but please give me a knob to rip Mono out.

And if there really is a need, can we give these guys some kind of free Visual Basic or something?

Yeah, which moved on how mono was the first litigation possibility. And if you read my comment, it was disputing exactly that claim.

Nah, you've misunderstood, all my client apps work in Gnome (or at least Gtk as most of gnome is not crossplatform). They are client side, not server side and even that only in case when mono or java is the best tool.

I'll find another sticky note app if one of my 'clients' says so, but please give me a knob to rip Mono out.

Heh, I don't need to get rid of Tomboy, I was to lazy to move from Notes which were/are better for stickies anyway.

As far as more advanced Note taking than stickies, I'm using my own app for too long now to switch to Tomboy.

What prevents you from doing: yum remove -y mono-core for example on Fedora. You have to check mono in fedora during install I think (not really sure in this) Fedora doesn't install mono or mono apps by default. Hell put this command in launcher on panel (with gsu or something like that) and you'll get your knob:)

And if there really is a need, can we give these guys some kind of free Visual Basic or something?

Gambas? http://gambas.sourceforge.net/
With Gtk bindings? http://gambas.gnulinex.org/gtk/
