It irks me that mono is running. I love tomboy notes; the notes are a big part of my workflow. The facts I can easilly open them, backup them, wont lose them, .. and dont have to save them, all make the notes workflow important to my personal workflow..
Sadly, its a windows project and seeing that “mono /../tomboy/Tomboy.exe –panel-applet ..” each time really irks me! If there were a decent equivalent to tomboy..
On the other hand I shouldnt think like that! It works & there is no reason for paranoia. More available software is good & software that is available on both platforms is good for both the developpers (more availability), the people using it (less change when changing platforms) and in the end for linux.. (because you wont have to miss your beloved Tomboy!! Although not everyone agrees mono is positive. But I get the positives here since I shortly considered wrtiting mono myself to have my software available on both linux and windows. Didnt do so in the end because the project became absolete..)
Its just that I have a preconception about windows software 🙂 Windows & all on and around it is So Incredibly Unstable & Buggy! Why would I want to run buggy stuffs on that perfect Linux platform I routinely enjoy 🙂
