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.

However, I just... use Emacs.

Eclipse is gigantic and anything it has that Emacs lacks seems to be something I would never want.

Most people who speak of an IDE wouldn't include Emacs or VIM + *insert extension(s)* in the class of "IDE".
They usually mean "Approachable GUI IDE".

_That's_ what I'm talking about; that when people ask for a good IDE, all I can suggest is Emacs, as I know nothing about the alternatives, because I've never wanted to use one since learning Emacs.
