Mono Project Mono project founder Miguel de Icaza claims that Microsoft prevented the open source project from holding a meeting at the company's Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles. Microsoft states on its conference Web site that its 'Birds of a Feather' sessions are proposed and voted on by the community. But the Mono BOF was never listed for voting and therefore received no votes, despite the submission being confirmed, according to De Icaza's blog.

Why's everyone bashing him? There's a good technology out there and he's trying to bring a foss version of it to everyone for the benefit of the community. Someone needs to be working on a managed-language solution for *nix and it's a good thing that java doesn't have to be the only one.
