Probably the biggest is that it's a GUI app, as opposed to Unison's 
command-line interface. That's just a matter of taste.

With regards to Mono, it's a new technology, it's not proven to be a 
stable Linux platform, and frankly it just makes me ask--why not Java? 
Installing a Mono app requires me to download, install, and run an 
entirely different VM alongside my already existing Java apps.

Furthermore there's the legal issues with Microsoft--even if they're FUD 
they're still there, and I am somewhat doubtful of a large crowd getting 
behind Mono in the near future.

I'm not anti-Mono by any stretch of the imagination, but it does make me 
feel a little "turned off" as I said. (/me hopes not to start another 
language flamewar ...)
