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.

Is anyone aware of any other major differences?


Yes, VB.NET support is like 95% from my experience.

Also, VB.NET bugs are very slow to be fixed in Mono.

C# is the way to go, don't use VB.NET.
