Debian and its clones Well, this is interesting. We already have a Mono item ruffling some feathers on OSNews today, but here we have the apparent news that Tomboy has become a default part of GNOME on Squeeze, the next release of Debian. Wait, what now? Update: I've updated the article with Fedora's position in all this. Read on! Update II: Josselin Mouette replies.

You did get that wrong. The GNOME 3.0 Shell is based on JavaScript and GObjectIntrospection.


Hey, thanks for the information! I'm actually very relieved now. I'm not a GNOME User, but I use Gtk+ as my widget set of choice and I'm sure it would take a severe blow if the GNOME Community went through turbulent times because, having to rewrite major portions of it's desktop.

I wish I could mod you informative.

Anywyas, now I just hope they'll end up throwing a good FAST Javascript engine to the game, and I'll be just happy.

Although I would prefer if someone simply wrote a front end to CSharp's Standardized language to, say, parrot, just so we could port C#+Gtk# apps without relying on any piece of .Net technology other than the language grammar.

Can language grammars be patented?

C# without the libraries is nothing. is like Java language without the java core libraries.

Perhaps, but I believe it'd be fine with libraries such as those in Java's class library. And those are now open source, too.

The APIs would have to be changed to fit the preferred style for C#, but I think it could be an interesting project.

And those are, of course, for the non-gui stuff. Couple that with the existing Gtk# scene and you'd have a pretty good platform, at least as far as I'm concerned.
