Mono Project We've already seen some heavy discussion on Mono and C# here on OSNews the past few weeks, as it became clear the patent situation regarding the ECMA parts of Mono was anything but faith inspiring. This issue seems to be resolved now: Microsoft has made a legally binding promise not to sue anyone who uses or distributes implementations of said ECMA standards. Following this news, Mono will be split in two; the ECMA standard parts, and the rest.

This was rather obvious. I hope this will end this rather boring story.

Now it's time to compete and show that those Unix/Linux technologies are truly better than others ;-)

Personally, I think .NET is a great technology and I'm expecially amazed by the big eco-system of additional modules/technologies/solutions/extensions developers are building upon it. While most of interesting ones are still made by MS itself, there are lots of interesting stuff by independent developers.

As a developers, we're fairly interested in being able to spread our software to Linux/Unix variants, as long as there's a good compatibility degree.

I can see the reason behind people who would like to use C# over GTK+'s C.

On the other hand, I cannot see the reason to use C# in favor of Qt's C++. The latter is just so beautifully done that coding in it feels easier than Java for the most part.

Must be the reason why C# hasn't taken up at all among most KDE devs.
