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.

The CLR and C# are interesting technologies and the implementation of it in Mono beats the original in performance aspects. I wish someone would take the project, strip the .NET BCL oyr of it and add a *nix/POSIX specific class library to it. Maybe the *nix world would take it seriously that way, because right now it seems to be more of a laughing stock.
