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.

I was thinking about free software development. If we see what happened to Java and now, not surprisingly, learn that C# is not an option, I wonder what is now a good, free, proven, modern, static checked programming language with a state of the art IDE that supports multiple platforms that could become a successor of C/C++?

The open source community seems to have very strong solutions when it comes to dynamic languages, but not so much for statically checked ones?
