Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

Yea that's great and I'm not arguing against it. I'm just pointing out that Microsoft has a head start on features anytime they want to have one and they've got a lot more resources than Novell.
And right now Mono is finishing up 2.0 compatibility while Microsoft is rolling out 3.0, correct?

It does seem that Mono will forever be a step behind. Which is fine.
