General Development "In the last five years, LLVM has evolved from an academic project to the universal back-end of C, C++, and Objective C compilers. The key to its success is its performance and adaptability, both of which derive from its unique design and implementation."

A lot of this would have been solved if Mono used a platform independent API to start with. Also the APIs and technologies on .NET/WinRT are patented which in itself legally restricts them from being used in other platforms/runtimes.

Microsoft have made a legally binding policy not to use those that use Mono and Infringe on Patents.

The .NET framework is also covered by Microsoft’s legally binding community promise.

If anyone claims otherwise it is pure FUD.

It's not unlimited, you know. Under which specification do WinRT and WPF reside?

Gtk# or Gecko# are there (but anyway, there wouldn't be much point to Mono without some significant portability of code with MS stack)
