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.

The community told him it was a waste of time and a drain of the community resources. He didn't listen ...

Except that it's not a waste of time. I want mono to succeed and so do many others. You can't go on developing nothing but c++ applications forever.

That "drain of resources" bit is crap. He's not forcing anybody to help him. You make it sound like other projects are being unfairly robbed of the resources they deserve.
