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 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.


What about .NET on Linux servers and desktops though? Does that mean they are de-emphasizing Mono on Linux and moving most (or all) of their focus to the mobile market?
"

Mono will still be written in C++ (unless someone will write a good C# native copiler I guess ;) ) so Mono will still run on Linux.

It does seem though, that Mono isn't very used on Linux. At least not as used as SH or Python. I guess that most FOSS developers doesn't like C# and .Net because they come from "the enemy". ;)
