Phoronix: Mono 3.0 Released With A Ton Of Improvements
Miguel de Icaza has announced the release of Mono 3.0 for improving the Microsoft .NET capabilities on Linux and other operating systems...
Haters gonna hate.
But .NET is great!
It is a powerful and comprehensive all-in-one standard library for doing all sorts of things.
C# is a beautiful and nice language!
Now if only Unity3D would upgrade from Mono 2.6 sometime in the next millennium.
Like i said in another thread....i have NOTHING against MONO....as long is restricted to be used in WINE.
*There* is where it belongs....and i can't wait for a new version
0.0.8 is EXCELENT in WINE and i'm playing all my Window$ games in WINE using MONO instead of .NET.
You can't blame him. Desktop Linux has been quite an awful mess. In recent years it has gotten better yes, and for an experienced user with time to set things up and configure them, it is fine. But if you don't have the time to configure things, and want an easy desktop that "just works", plays games, and runs the apps you need, OSX or Windows are often the better choice. I use desktop Linux, but anything but Ubuntu/Mint take too much time to set up. Hardware support is also an issue and so is running certain software. I often just use windows to avoid dealing with it.

If Mono hurts your userspace (hopefully this is your point, as Mono is not a part of the kernel), may be kind enough to say how it does it to you? How free software blocks you to be creative, and you don't criticize at all binary blobs (which are encrypted solutions of your drivers) in Linux kernel, or Fluendo MP3 codecs, or Flash, or NVidia/AMD proprietary drivers? or H264 codecs?
You are quiet at all those things that people use or used to use in Linux, and no one cared of free Theora codecs, as far as I'm aware.
This makes me think you are not only with no common sense, but you make your claims baseless. Shall be removed also Typescript from working on NodeJS on Linux? Is also from Microsoft and is ECMA. Maybe we shall remove USB in future as the specification was made by Intel but was also defined with Microsoft employees and C++ as (as I've told in other posts) the main guy in the C++11 is an Microsoft employee. He stated even that he would want a GC into C++ in a public talk.
