I received an email a few days ago from the Pomodoro Technique® legal department, informing me that I was infringing on their trademarks. The icon looks too much like their logo and it’s not clear that CherryTomato is not an official Pomodoro Technique® tool.
Well it will be so even less now. 25 minutes might work really well for some things but time boxing can be more than that.

I have been on OSX for about a year now. As CherryTomato is written in C#, I decided to take a look at Mono and try porting CherryTomato.

I have been using CT myself for a while now and it seems to be close to ready for a beta that runs both on Windows and OSX.
