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.

Again, winforms and asp.net, et al, are not the only interesting things about .Net. Those are useful libaries for doing Windows specific GUI development (WinForms), and Windows specific server side development (ASP.Net). For Linux, those things are useless, other than for possible cross platform migration.

But, again, the C# language itself is useful. The CLI itself is useful. And GTK# is very useful.
