Gnome doesn't bother me particularly, I prefer KDE but that is what it is, a preference.
The thing that bothers me is Mono. There have been some pretty weasely words about this from it inception, as to its patent or non-patent encumbrances, what it might or might not implement that might or might not be MS IP and the MS attitude to this.
Given the pronouncement by De Icaza you have to wonder what his motives were both in developing Mono and his next job destination.
If Mono comes to be seen as tainted then there are implications for Gnome, though I think these are probably minor.
