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, 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.

IDE? I'm not sure why one would want one, but some people _seem_ to want to program with a mouse...
I don't know anything about them, other than I... don't get it. Emacs user...

As an Emacs user, you should understand perfectly why someone would want an IDE - it practically *is* one.

As an Eclipse user, I almost never use the mouse, relying almost exclusively (and instinctively) on a huge number of shortcut keys for every conceivable operation. A single application for writing, compiling, running, debugging code? Tools for working with code - renaming, extracting functions, warning of possible errors? Plugins for everything else you could ever want?

Does that not sound at all like Emacs to you?
