Chris wasn't aware of the details and commented incorrectly that Gnote
doesn't import Tomboy notes and you follow it up with  "It's a funny
thing is that it uses the same file format. This gnote thing is
ridiculous" That sounds like you are both agreeing with each other
rather than correcting anything and yes, I did pay attention.

Yes, you are both wrong.  Fedora 11 which is the latest release
continues to include Tomboy and F-Spot installed by default.  Fedora 12
will include Gnote by default instead of Tomboy in the Live CD and
F-Spot continues to be default in the DVD as of now.

That's absolutely right.  Gnote is developed by Hub (cc'ed) who is a
independent developer not associated with the Fedora Project.  I don't
mind a rant as long as it is valid criticism but in this case, it seems
to have been based on misconceptions instead.  It would be courteous to
post some corrections.  Thanks.
