"Nice try, but "mono" actually means "monkey".".

You're right, but the bad translation is because my bad English: actually I'm an hispanoparlante (Spanish native speaker) ;)

Kudos to Miguel, of course! that's a fantastic job, things like Gtk# or support for the System.Windows.Forms are really amazing! But the point to me is that the people programming in Unix-like OSes, generally works against the BEAST (MS) and if the people starts developing software using Mono, they will work agains the BEAST with tools provided by the beast.

Do you realize my point?
