Your favorite Mono just officially gave crap about its roots in an epic futile attempt of dropping useless attack on mentally aware Linux community, focusing its lying energy rays of darkness on where it can get money from AND damage microsoft enemies as well. That being Android and Mac. Well, congratulations!
Maybe sometime you will follow the example and stop lying too?
And you point me to ECMA when I asked about IEEE/ISO?
Because Xamarin Studio is MonoDevelop, at least as coding is concerned: is Gtk# based, it uses the same refactoring core (mainly: NRefactor), the same solution loader, the same dialogs for adding references, the same code for docking UI, etc. It is using also the very same control to display code and the same solution browser.
Actually that raises an interesting question for me, has anyone tried running the windows client of Xamarin Studio on Linux, because unless they're checking for the win32 or mac I don't see any technical reasons as to why it shouldn't just work.
