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.

Whether Swing is better than Windows.Forms or not is difficult for me to say. Windows.Forms strongly resembles Borland Delphi (MS.NET is basically Java with Delphi-class hierachy, heh). OTOH, I clearly enjoy working with Swing, though AWT and SWT have their strong sides as well.
