> If I remember right MS wasn't the only one ho had some input on the 2.0 version of tha standard and I think even the Mono project had some say, but don't quote me on that. Other then that I find it funy that Mono isn't having as bad a time geting to their 2.0 version then Microsoft is having. ;)

Weren't you the one that said that Mono is not blindly following MS? So MS releases 2.0 and Mono sprints after. No community to discuss this, no thinking "how could _we_ do it best for our platform", no, there's a new MS standard, panic, quick, start porting. Open Source at its best.

No, we don't sprint after MS, we continue to implement the ISO standard and the ISO standard has a new version -> 2.0.
This has nothing to do with MS, the ISO standard get enlarged by MS, Novell and some other companies wich are in the standard committee.
If there is an new C# standard everyone will implement it (MS, Mono, dotGNU,..) like everyone implement a new C or C++ standard.
Even if i have said it again and again. You look to much on MS. For me you look like a rabbit which see a snake and get stiff and get panic. Forget it, thats a new technology with a new open standard no more and no less. It makes no difference if MS is implementing the standard too.
