Mono Project In a recent interview with the online edition of the Austrian daily Newspaper Der Standard, Mono project-lead Miguel de Icaza pleads for a cooperation between Mono and Microsoft's .Net: "I think that the deal should include a technical Mono/.NET collaboration, and even go as far as Microsoft recommending Mono for all of their developers looking at migration."

Actually don't be so sure about that. Microsoft is well aware of the existence of Mono, and them supporting Mono only boasts .NET over Java. However their support isn't active with money or sharing of code, because they want to make sure Mono and .NET forge ahead on two different paths. But many of the Microsoft developers also work on the Mono project.

Also you have to understand that Miguel is shooting for Mars in hopes of reaching the Moon.
