Mono Project For the most time, I've been firmly in the largest camp when it comes to the Mono debate - the 'I don't care'-camp. With patent lawsuits being hotter than Lady Gaga right now, that changed. For good reason, so it seems; while firmly in the 'ZOMG-MICROSOFT-IS-T3H-EVILL!1!!ONE!'-camp, The-Source.com investigated the five most popular Mono applications, and the conclusion is clear: all of them implement a lot of namespaces which are not covered by Microsoft's community promise thing.

Its not like there is dearth of programming languages that are fully implemented in way that is safe to use.

I just don't understand this fascination with .NET, Mono, or Java for that matter. It seems like very on wants to pretend they are with the big boys.

Word.

I don't understand GNOME, or even GTK in the face of how good Qt and a number of other toolkits are...
I don't have to, though. I can just... not use them.
