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.

The CLR hasn't been standardized by the ISO, but C# has, twice.

The CLR is Microsoft's implementation of the CLI, which has also been standardized by ISO (CLI/C# et al., always go through ECMA first, then ISO, then the ECMA docs are updated to match final ISO).
