Mono Project Novell has announced the release of Mono version 1.2, a new version of the Mono project to create an implementation of the Microsoft .Net Framework for open source. Mono 1.2 enhances the open-source effort and is a major step toward compatibility with the .Net Framework 2.0, Novell officials said. Novell announced the new version on Nov. 9 at the Microsoft TechEd Developers conference in Barcelona.

.Net is a great framework. Now with Windows Forms support, Mono should see a lot more usage, which will lead to a better tested platform.

I know at the least that I will start using Mono (given it really does work).

Mono will not see more usage until commonly used computers will be equiped with Athlon128 FX-GTO-R Vroom! (tm) Edition or Core 6 Trio 3 Duo 2 and 32GB of ram. It's so slow it's not even funny.

Yeah, it's a flamebait but I think Mono devs should work on making it faster. Java was like that too but now Java apps just use slightly more ram, not 50% of CPU power.
