Mono Project The Mono project has released Mono 2.0. As most of you will know, Mono is an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other operating systems. The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0. The release notes detail all the changes and new features.

It's pretty common on Linux desktops these days. F-Spot, Beagle, Banshee, and Tomboy all use Mono.

There is no Mono at all on my Linux system.

I'm running a KDE 4.1.2 desktop (x86_64).

Works like a charm.

It also has Open Java installed (somewhat surprisingly, both openjdk and IcedTea), and the Gnash flash player.

Equivalents are:

F-Spot ==> digikam
Beagle ==> strigi
Banshee ==> Amarok
Tomboy ==> basket note pads
(there is also a KDE 4 Plasmoid, but basket note pads is way more functional).

Love the mono the tech, Dislike all of the apps you mentioned especially beagle. They have no home on any linux box I control.
