Mono Project Miguel de Icaza, founder of Xamarin and lead developer of the Mono open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET platform, announced on his blog today that the third major revision of the Mono framework is now available. Mono 3.0 was released on GitHub on October 18. It adds support for some of the most recently added key features of the .NET platform, incorporates Microsoft's open-source framework for Web development, and beefs up the capabilities of Mono on Mac OS X and iOS. It also lays the groundwork for much more rapid development of features for the Mono platform going forward.

They don't charge for the Mono versiĆ³n of Android, they charge for MonoDroid, the toolkit to make Android Applications using C# and Mono.

I was talking about the one to make Android apps. Nobody takes the Dalvik-to-C# port of Android seriously.

That is what he mentioned, obviously you don't know what you are talking about.

This is mono-droid. A toolkit to build Android Applications in C# and Mono.

Xobot OS is another thing entirely (it was a way of testing their Java to C# compiler).

Also a lot of people are taking MonoDroid and MonoTouch seriously because Xamarin have been in profit only 6 months since Miguel started his company.
