Because contrary to popular belief, you can't just barge in into GNOME or KDE and start coding with the big KDE/GNOME guys. That's not how it works (sadly one one side, thankfully on the other).

Yeah, and I said previously now they're defacto working for RedHat and Suse....but without the pay. But at least these guys are doing something pretty different.

I have a feeling the performance isn't going to be great -especially on low-end machines because of Cairo.

Mono limits performance more than Cairo, but both of those are getting better every day. Performance has not yet been one of our *major* pursuits (since other distros usually make it one of their *only* pursuites)
