    Is Mono a godsend that brings everything together
    or
    Is Mono an evil contamination that we will have to deal with

    Someone wanted to use one of my .NET applications on Linux and of course, the only way to do that is via Mono. The only thing I had to modify in my code is changing \ to / in filepaths. Because of that, it gets a thumbs up in my book.

    That does sound pretty ace indeed. I even find it odd that Mono doesn't do this translation itself.

    Yes this mono http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page

    IMHO, Linux doesn't need it and is better off without it.
    I don't think the Gnome project should have used it,
    and I don't use Gnome for that very reason
    (and the fact that it's a bloated behemoth) :laugh:

    Me too, but in a way, I am happy. If I don't want the application to be used on Linux, it won't work unless I make those neccessary changes: a weak but effective security measure.

    A little more insight into the Mono project...

    source:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mono_%28software%29

    Probably best to stay completely out of Microsoft Legal Spider Web

    Anything that uses a Monkey for a logo and is named
    after a disease should (at all costs) be avoided :laugh:
