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.

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".

Pretty sure "approachable GUI IDE" is an oxymoron... I've used a few IDEs over the years, and those capable enough to be worth using tend to have a huge learning curve. Excellent for a developer willing to take time to learn his tools, but very tricky to start with - particularly if coming from the "vi + terminal" school of development.
