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.

Well, it has some good feature (Linspire), but it was OpenSourced too late. It really had some of Windows good features and discoverability of new apps directly in the app (and an app store). But the fork of Mozilla/OpenOffice/KDE was terrible.

Now, Xandros+Linspire seem even more doomed than ever.
