Mono Project The Mono project has released Moonlight 2, the open source implementation of Microsoft's Silverlight. Moonlight allows Silverlight content to run on platforms that do not have an official Silverlight client, such as Linux and PowerPC Macs. Microsoft also expanded its patent agreement with Novell to cover all users of Moonlight, no matter the Linux version.

So, you are handcrafting a web forum basictly, you don't have a deadline and a customer who is waĆ­ting for the results yesterday, yo don't need to show complex reports that will be need to be exported to excel, pdf or formated nicely in html, you don't need to assing rights per user, per station and syncronice data from diferrent databases at nigh in a reliable way so the information is fine and dandy at 6:00 a.m. not less, and this is only just the beggining i won't talk about the complicated processes. I agree with you that some parts need to be hand made, I do that, but there are other parts that it doenst matter if you have the powerful text editor in the world, you need other tools that the standars doesn't cover yet.

I have the benefit of being freelance, I choose the jobs, I set the standards. Not everybody gets that benefit, and businesses cut out the planning, cut corners and create the very organisation / planning problems that you describe.

You seem to be referring more to internal b2b stuff; If you need average, good-enough results for business people then yes, no problem using quick tools. For a public website, where milliseconds count, then that is where I am saying that hand coding runs circles around being lazy.

But we are talking about standars, not performace, but anyway, we have different points of views and I respect your as I know you respect mine.
