Today I was going through all the process which were running on my system
and suddenly I found something which caught my attention


USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
bala      1890  0.2  0.7 363724 29184 ?        Sl   15:32   0:01 mono
/usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe --sm-disable --panel-applet
--oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:TomboyApplet_Factory --oaf-i

What an exe running on my system with no Ubuntu !!!

*bala at machine:~$* *ll /usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 374272 2010-10-26 22:22 /usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe**
*bala at machine:~$* *file /usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe
/usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe: PE32 executable for MS Windows (console) Intel
80386 32-bit Mono/.Net assembly
*
This confirms that it is an exe, so I started browsing more about the same
and landed on this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1419189
which does explain as to why there is an exe.  I really do not know C# to
appreciate it.
