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 GnomeFiles.org: 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.

Re: which environment ?

IŽam a Kylix programmer, but this system seems to abadoned by Borland. I thinking what can the next environment.

My priorities:
- Static typing. IMHO it is far more reilable. Basic, Python, Perl, PHP, TCL are not alternatives for me.
- Multiplatform, I don't want tied to windows or any other platform.
- Stable and reliable language and library structure. My previous bigger appication written in wxWindows and I have very serious problems because the API changed between 2.0.x and 2.2.x.
- API for database access, printing, web page generation, web services or other multi-tier solution (corba, etc), widgets(forms, buttons, check box, etc).
- Ordinarily I write closed source applications.


The best can be IMHO the .NET, but the legal state of mono is a little bit equivocal. Java also can be very good choice, but it depends on SUN and the SUN is not too big and stable company. And if SUN goes to bankrupt and buy it any $C0-like company I don't know what will happen with Java.
