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."

...mono was a waste of time from the start.

Considering C# is an ISO standards based language, I don't think you can say mono was a waste of time. It brings C# to the playing field for platforms other than Windows. If anything, it has allowed people to bring their ASP.NET apps written in C# to Linux based web servers. Yes, we've had Java for a long time and it's run things cross platform, but this is another option for the masses. Besides, there have been plenty of really good apps for Linux written in C# using Mono.
