Sure, there is, but no need to panic ... sky is not falling yet (and
there are many reasons to believe it never will).

Note for example, that default installation of Fedora 12 probably won't
require Mono at all (Tomboy was replaced by Gnotes, although the main

I don't think you need to really worry about Mono itself. If you really are worried about Microsoft suing your brains out, just remove mono-web and mono-winforms. You don't even need those two for most packaged Mono apps on Linux. Only if you want to run applications compiled for .NET framework on Visual Studio/SharpDevelop.
