I'm not blaming anyone, merely pointing out that there is a conceptual link between GNOME and
Mono, and Mono and Microsoft; those doesn't exist with KDE, say.
The problem is the vague nature of those relationships - you say there isn't one, but that
rather depends what we mean by a "relationship" - financial, logical, conceptual, emotional,
Ill-defined boundaries mean that it's hard to tell what's going on when vendors base their
offerings on GNOME: does that include Mono technologies? And what about when users install
apps - something small and innocuous like Tomboy, say - which uses Mono?
