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.

As an IT professional, my users will NEVER get a desktop using these programs.

@Work, @Home, whatever.

Thus I will never get the painful task of a data/settings migration requested by these users.
As long as there is a doubt on them.

A simple way to keep away from troubles.
