Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Mono discussion may be tiring, but the fact of the matter is that thanks to this discussion, various major Linux distributions are now making official statements detailing their position in the Mono/C# debate. The latest to do this is Ubuntu, which reiterated their position yesterday.

Why would Microsoft want to kill Mono? They want exactly the opposite! They want it to expand and get adopted! Mono makes .Net portable (in theory). MS is not encouraging Mono use, but they prefer you use .Net on Linux than Java. It's a non-said sale argument.

There is some sign of mind change at MS. They may have finaly understood they can't own the whole world and their only chance to continue to grow is by cooperating. 20 years ago the IT industry was full of small company that could have change the game anytime. Nowadays, it's happens less often and most of the players are huge one, like MS, Oracle, IBM, etc...
