Also I wont be a big fan of Ubuntu(which it sounds like your using) until they move there software over to a rolling release and let the developers handle bugs fixes when there found, rather then forcing everyone to use outdated bugged software for 6 months. Maybe Ubuntu 14 will be the one

    As a end user your opinion matters, but from a technical stand point, i'm telling you there is nothing wrong with Mono itself. If anything "banshee" was written poorly. When Mono 3 comes out, there will be even more reason for developers to use it as it now has MS's open source stack and huge performance increases. Ill be releasing games for Linux with Mono. Until something replaces C# for my needs I have to use it. At the moment nothing compares for my targets.
    I've tried every mono application and all of them were unstable mess. Banshee was simply unusable while tomboy was heavier than Firefox. F-spot was much slower than its Vala equivalent, so I see no point in using this shit. When mono3 goes out it should be completely ignored by Linux community, because it's just m$ crap.

    Not actually true.

    Xamarin Studio is a branded build of MonoDevelop trunk - a bit like Chrome versus Chromium.

    All the new Xamarin Studio changes are Free Software, and available right now in MonoDevelop git, and work fine on Linux (Xamarin Studio is still GTK+2, even on OSX)

    Instead, GNOME is following Javascript. AKA ECMA-262. Co-authored by... Microsoft. Good job!

    What he' saying is the apps are a mess, and mono itself is well enough a working language.

    Well, I guess I got all worked up over nothing. Even the article said Windows and OSX though and left out Linux, so I almost felt like this wasn't phoronix hate spin for once. It seems disengenuous for them to leave out Linux as the target of their development studio when developers are by far the largest workforce users of GNU oses.

    Statically typed bytecode targeted language. Like Java, not like Scala. Not static vs dynamic linking.

    Xamarin isn't a Linux company. Xamarin Studio doesn't have an official Linux release, as Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS aren't available for Linux.

    Xamarin Studio, however, is just a badged version of MonoDevelop 4.0 - like Chrome/Chromium. And MonoDevelop continues to work fine on Linux.
