Oh, before you all start thinking he's doing the holier-than-thou thing
again: Remember that I said I wanted to use Mono for my future/upcoming
applications? That's because I'm equally bad at freeing up my memory.

The reality in this story is that application developers don't want to
care about this. This is why a lot of them prefer to develop using
virtual machines.

And this is why GNOME should accept and go for higher programming
languages and modern development techniques.
