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.

The problematic Microsoft compatibility stack is cited as being part of Mono.


Yes, Mono implements those pieces, but no, they are not a core part of Mono. As I've said multiple times in this thread already, it is not required for people to install those components.

Mono is like GNOME or KDE in this respect, the projects might include a web browser, but you don't need to install it to have a functioning desktop.

"An open source implementation of Silverlight, called Moonlight, is now underway and is included in Mono 1.9. The Silverlight 2.0 .NET classes are implemented as part of the Olive module. Moonlight shipped as part of Mono 1.2.6 release."


Then Wikipedia is wrong. I know this might shock you, but Wikipedia is not the be-all, end-all of information.

I know for a fact that Moonlight is not included in Mono 1.9 or even 2.0 because I am one of the Moonlight developers.

I think I know just a *tad* more about this than Wikipedia or you.
