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.

C#, yet another fad language
by Electricmew on Fri 25th Feb 2005 02:19 UTC

Okay, I've sat and watched enough langauges. It doesn't amaze me how java boomed, and it doesn't amaze me how C# boomed. Its just like the wonderful world of Pascal. Why are we reinventing the wheel and not using the wheels out there?

Why can't people just use the standardised languages which have been around and evolved? C/C++, etc. etc. FORTRAN for the numerical libs of course.

The point is, yet another language has been created. Another langauge is here and another langauge again. I use BSD, and also know Novell is in charge of the MONO on BSD. What I don't et is why ew need 'yet' another language when the langauges out there are just as/maybe more efficient. Cost of programmer time? Okay if C++ is wasting time for 'you', then you don't need to program. It shows how you are a immature programmer and you don't need to be in the prorgamming world.

I've said enough of the truth, cheers.
