I do not know if I should work with Banshee or some other applications since I am afraid that their future is threatened if Mono stops developing. An example: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/open-source/is-mono-dead-is-novell-dying/8821.

Are my fears reasonable?

Novell has been supporting Mono, so while this may hamper development, Mono is open-source, independent contributors can still go ahead making it better. –  Oxwivi Jun 23 '11 at 8:37

The core mono team lost their jobs at Novell / Attachmate. However Miguel de Icaza (founder of gnome and the mono project) has taken most of the original team into a mono based startup called Xamarin

They are committed to contributing to and developing the core opensource mono, this commitment was made in Miguels de Icaza's blog.

Since the takeover happened mono 2.10 made it into ubuntu 11.10.
