Mono Project Sure, everyone knows Tomboy, F-spot, Beagle, MonoDevelop, Muine, Blam! or Monodoc. But there are a lot of other interesting Mono/GTK# applications out there that need your attention. Join us for a quick listing of the not-so-well-known GTK# apps and you will witness yourself that the platform is flourishing.

Especially after java 5 the desktop applications are getting better in java. And, they are REAL cross platform. Not only GNome..

How about cross language?

Today it is not possible to fully utilize a non US keyboard
if you run Linux. Depending on what locale you use various keys will be untyepable. E.g. on a Swedish keyboard you can't type ~, on Danish, Italian,... keyboards it will be other characters.

This bug has been around for about five years, no wonder Linux developers go for mono instead of java.

For more information (or perhaps your bug vote) see:

In my oppinion java is cross platform only as long as you run windows. This bug have been around for over five years, no wonder Linux developers turn elsewhere.

Similar problems have also been common over time on Solaris, I have no idea of the current Solaris state though.
