I´m just wanna ask, why we have Tomboy when it consumes roughly three

I for one see no reason to replace something that works brilliantly.
Tomboy is very well featured and is under constant improvement. If you
feel it is badly performing then please file a bug about it.

I'm kind of getting a bit fed up with this constant "replace existing mono
app with non-mono". I'll be completely honest here, I LOVE all the mono
apps out there, I have had absolutely no problems with any of them, and
the devs are very approachable and helpful.

Rather than look at replacing something that still leads the pack with
something less featured, let's try and improve it. File bugs, test
releases etc.

Lacking some features is a true. So i´m just wondering so why Fedora replaced
Tomboy by Gnote? [1]


Ratislav, sorry if this seems aggressive but in all honesty what's the

Don´t worry, we´re just discussing :-)

Something as trivial and fixable as memory consumption is by no
means a reason to replace.

I´m not sure whether memory consumption is a bug and it makes sense to file a
bug against memory consumption. Isn´t it caused by mono? Is any chance to
reduce memory consumption? I´d really appreciate it on my old notebook (CPU 1,4
GHz Celeron and 768GB RAM). That´s the point in my case.
