Mono Project The Mono project has released Mono 2.0. As most of you will know, Mono is an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other operating systems. The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0. The release notes detail all the changes and new features.

Mono not only makes it easy to run on Linux C# applications written for Windows, it also makes your Linux box act like a Windows box (slow, heavy and full of shite).

Just like any other interpreted language... such as:
- python?
- Ruby?
- Java?
- perl?

No one uses all of these on a linux system... It's all C++ or... let me see... Assembly language!!?

lol

I use at least 3 out of those 4. My web site uses python (django), and my OS's package management runs on python. As far as I'm concerned the best bittorrent client out there is still Azureus and perl...what Linux distro doesn't depend on perl in one place or another. I think that I actually do have a program installed that uses Ruby, whether I use that feature of the program or not is another story.

Mono isn't that bad, I have an 8 year old PC and I am using Banshee music player, with Mono 2.0 it doesn't feel slow any more.

If used right it can theoretically be as fast as C++. The implementation is still progressing but it's a lot better than it used to be.

theoretically doesn't mean in practice.

That's why gnome developers are doing Vala.
