Mono Project For the most time, I've been firmly in the largest camp when it comes to the Mono debate - the 'I don't care'-camp. With patent lawsuits being hotter than Lady Gaga right now, that changed. For good reason, so it seems; while firmly in the 'ZOMG-MICROSOFT-IS-T3H-EVILL!1!!ONE!'-camp, The-Source.com investigated the five most popular Mono applications, and the conclusion is clear: all of them implement a lot of namespaces which are not covered by Microsoft's community promise thing.

Calling Lindows a competitor is being too kind. It was a scummy outfit with a crappy Linux distro. It was one of those cases where the law was with Lindows, but the moral high ground was with Microsoft.

Lindows was supposed to be a miraculous Linux based Windows clone that was 100% compatible with windows applications. It was non free ( $50- $100 yearly) linux distro that sucked.
