Mono Project The Mono project has released Moonlight 2, the open source implementation of Microsoft's Silverlight. Moonlight allows Silverlight content to run on platforms that do not have an official Silverlight client, such as Linux and PowerPC Macs. Microsoft also expanded its patent agreement with Novell to cover all users of Moonlight, no matter the Linux version.

I’m competitive with a text editor (TextMate), but Notepad would suffice. In fact, I’m well ahead of the curve—I’m developing on the cutting edge. I’m writing code that WYSIWYG tools _can’t_ do because this stuff requires _skill_ and knowledge. If you want the _best_ website, you _have_ to hand write it. If you want the fastest site, you _have_ to hand write it, because the tools cannot think for you.

I’m hand writing the next version of OSnews. It is going to be faster than any other news site. It will be incredibly elegant, and well designed, and it will be HTML5. It will work in IE. It is the best piece of code I’ve ever written and it is leagues ahead of the game.

If you can’t compete with Notepad, then you don’t know your craft well enough. Get learning, all the knowledge is freely available on the Internet.
