  • It looks like Tomboy, it behaves like Tomboy, but it isn't Tomboy — it's Gnote, a C++ port of the Mono-based Tomboy note-taking application. Citing a lack of space to include the Mono libraries on the Live CD, Tomboy and Mono had to go. Users are still able to install Mono and Mono-based applications.
