Mono Project The Mono project has released Mono 2.0. As most of you will know, Mono is an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other operating systems. The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0. The release notes detail all the changes and new features.

you are absolutely right. mono is a great thing to have on the linux desktop.

if mono can handle the code there are a lot of mission critical business apps written in .net that won't be worried by a move to linux.

linux must be compatible with windows in at least some way to let people know that there IS an open and free choice.
