Yes, there are new GNOME applications that are written in C#, and I believe there will be more. What I don't believe is that "all the new Gnome stuff will be done in c# using mono and gtk#". If GNOME project decided that "from now on, all new GNOME applications shall be written in C#", I'm sure they would lose a lot of developers.

Personally I don't know C#, so I don't have any real opinnions about it. Generally speaking I like the fact that we have several languages as this allows using correct tool for a given task. C# API for GTK? Sure, sounds great.

Christianity, noun: The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
