Mono Project In a recent interview with the online edition of the Austrian daily Newspaper Der Standard, Mono project-lead Miguel de Icaza pleads for a cooperation between Mono and Microsoft's .Net: "I think that the deal should include a technical Mono/.NET collaboration, and even go as far as Microsoft recommending Mono for all of their developers looking at migration."

Miguel is like Linus - TECHNOLOGY DRIVEN!

And here I was thinking de Icaza set out to start Gnome because of the evil Qt license, that is to say, because of politics. It's funny how things are evolved...

Not "evil", just not free and not open source. Just like the original .NET implementation that Miguel is working to replace with a free one.

Yep,

Miguel seems to have become a love boy for all technologies that Microsoft produces. Maybe that is a way for him to compensate the fact of not being able to work there.
