You really don't get it. I think you would have a very hard time finding anyone who didn't agree with you about the technical strengths of .net/mono. I think you would have a hard time finding anyone who wouldn't be very excited about mono if it were not for the licensing issues.
So, instead of telling people they are boring and to shut up, why don't you realize that *your* response to people's concerns is entirely off topic and pointless and, yes, boring?
Everyone knows that but it is not what we are talking about. Seriously, no one is debating the potential for RAD in mono. No one. OK? So why don't *you* quit bringing it up?
On the other hand, you tell people "if you don't like it, don't use it" but there is a battle to keep mono out of gnome being waged. A big part of that battle is about mindshare and misinformation (on the part of mono IMHO)
So, this is not, as you imply, about me downloading muine or not. This is about mono being integrated into the heart of gnome. This is about important new apps being developed in mono instead of other languages and then having gnome destroyed by microsoft.
So, if you don't care about that, don't tell people to shut up becuase you are on a thread that is about a gnome technology. It may be a tangential issue to you but it is not to many (obviously). Your comments however are *entirely* tangential and pointless in every regard plus they are extremely rude and stupid.
I agree with your points, so let's discuss how Qt is viral and controlled by the proprietary Trolltech.
IMHO the Qt-based KDE is the biggest joke. The mainstream desktop environtment of the big, free, and open linux is based on strictly restricted (GPL isnstead of LGPL) very expensive (the unlimited version more expensive then the complete Visual Studio Professional with windows XP) commercial product...
