Mono Project Novell has announced the release of Mono version 1.2, a new version of the Mono project to create an implementation of the Microsoft .Net Framework for open source. Mono 1.2 enhances the open-source effort and is a major step toward compatibility with the .Net Framework 2.0, Novell officials said. Novell announced the new version on Nov. 9 at the Microsoft TechEd Developers conference in Barcelona.

Mono 1.2 does not claim to have a complete 2.0 implementation.

But you must not have tried very hard (or in the last 9 months), because master pages is one of the standard demos and standard samples of the XSP download.

Regarding your comment about "Windows style", the entire class library can be built with MonoDevelop (shocking, I know), and it is in fact, simpler than trying to build Mono on Windows.

Linux has always been the easiest platform to get Mono working. So am curious about what kind of problems you had, or even if you had one, or you have not yet mastered the use of "vi" or "emacs" to open a file (which is what I personally use).

Now, you might be referring to the fact that *Windows* developers do not care about MonoDevelop, and that is certainly true. Which is why we are working on having MonoDevelop open Visual Studio project in the future.

In the meantime, you can use "prj2make" to generate makefiles from visual studio solutions.

Now, I get the impression that you are a troll. Becaues there is an open source Java that you could use today, it is very complete, and Sun opening up Java will only make it more complete.

So I doubt that you are actually a Mono user, you seem to be a troll.
