Mono Project Two weeks ago we covered the news that the Mono development team were let go kicked out by the new owners of Novel, Attachmate, apparently to move operations to Germany. Miguel de Icazza, founder of Mono, has taken this opportunity to break off on his own and has started a new company, Xamarin, to bring commercial .NET development products to iOS and Android.

Miguel and the rest of the Mono Development Team will do fine. Before there was Novell, there was Ximian. I invested quite a bit of my personal treasure on Novell when they acquired Ximian, yet Novell never delivered on the full potential of Mono. I can only hope that Xamarin will triumph since this will become a big win for all the developers and end users that want to keep benefiting from a robust garbage collected framework that is truly multi-platform and Multilanguage and thanks to the many GUI toolkits (Gtk#, WinForms, MonoMac, etc.), it also give you applications that feel native in all the supported OSes.

Mucha, mucha suerte a todos los Monos!
