Mono Project We've already seen some heavy discussion on Mono and C# here on OSNews the past few weeks, as it became clear the patent situation regarding the ECMA parts of Mono was anything but faith inspiring. This issue seems to be resolved now: Microsoft has made a legally binding promise not to sue anyone who uses or distributes implementations of said ECMA standards. Following this news, Mono will be split in two; the ECMA standard parts, and the rest.

"They copied most of it from other languages anyway, so why not use Java, Ruby, C++, Object-C, Object-Pascal, Python, Smalltalk, ..?"

You meant IKVM, IronRuby, C++/CLI, Oxygene, IronPython, S#, right?

Ok, just kidding. But to let you know, the current project I'm working on uses C#, Python, Java, and JavaScript under the same code base thanks to .Net architecture.
