Mono Project This article provides a tour through some Mono programs, along with details about how you can start experimenting with them yourself. Not all of the programs featured here are finished products, but they're all exciting and show off interesting aspects of Mono. Even more Mono applications can be found at We should add to the list the excellent PolarViewer and SportTracker (they go together), and of course, GCursor#, CSBoardGalaxium Messenger, SkyNET and GLyrics among others like Bless, fewnn, GFax, WoodPusher, CDCollect and Kurush.

"Oh really - can we just kill this meme because it's wrong. There are plenty of seriously large python projects."

I figured I would get a response like this. Sure you CAN develop large systems in Python. But the result is often extremely slow. Example, I've played with a complex PIM written in Python that takes over a minute just to boot up.

But also, even if I give you this, it doesn't negate the point that Python is not suitable for networked applications that involve interacting with classes that are untrusted, etc.
