Not to be picky,but I have trouble even installing "correctly" Mono on my Slack box. OK,OK I'm just an intermediate user but funny thing is that I just un-archive the binary provided by Sun and I know I have java on my box.
When it comes to applications itself, well you see I have another problem: besides Beagle (which is probably the only thing I'd like to test) I can't find any mono application that can serve me right. I did mentioned that I can't install mono in 2 minutes,right?
I do agree with the fact that Java application suck compared with the mono ones. The last one basically are still delayed.
