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.

Mono isn't that bad, I have an 8 year old PC and I am using Banshee music player, with Mono 2.0 it doesn't feel slow any more.

If used right it can theoretically be as fast as C++. The implementation is still progressing but it's a lot better than it used to be.
