    Some analyst estimates that Monad would ship in Windows Server 2003 R2.. Does NetCraft confirm?

    I don't know if this had been talked about yet, but I just found out in an IIS7 webcast that Monad is not currently slated to be shipped in Longhorn. More on this as it becomes available.

    I'd certainly like to hear some of the "blocking" reasons behind this decision (if its for certain).

    Kinda mixed feelings about this, how will young new future Windows enthuasists/professionals be introduced to power of the prompt if its only as separate download or in the Server version. I was kinda planning to learn this and awe some friends at their LHs of my l33t Monad sk1lz. Guess not.

    if( story.isTrue() ) {
      me.setSad(true);
    }

    if( story.isTrue() ) {
      me.setSad(true);
    }


    This looks suspiciously Java-like. In C#, I would write it like this:
    if (story.IsTrue) {
       me.Sad = true;
    }

    Well, since "object.IsTrue" probably is a function it would be:

    if (story.IsTrue()) {
       me.Sad = true;
    }

    But in .NET, properties can hide the fuglies of a method like that, so the first example - story.IsTrue - is the correct
    C#/Boo/.NET idiom.

    I would write it like this in Boo:

    me.Sad = true if story.IsTrue

    Or, simplier:
    me.Sad = story.IsTrue // =D

    Oops. I think we got off topic.

    Truly a shame.  The most exciting power user feature is MSH

    Why does it have to be part of the OS? Just make it a free download and I'll be happy.

    Where can you get the Monad beta bits? I signed up on a MS beta site a few months ago and they said they would I would be "receiving an e-mail shortly" but months later it still hasn't arrived. Also, does MS have any sort of SDK or developer info site on MSDN for Monad? I remember seeing a demo on C9 which discussed how Monad command line apps extend from a common .NET base class.

    Maybe this has something to with it? If that's the case, no complaints here.

    Otherwise...

    EDIT: The OP's link doesn't seem to be working right now. Perhaps it was retracted?

    EDIT: I'm glad the link offers some hope, but I'm still cautious. The information seems to come not from a Microsoft employee, but an "industry analyst", and those people are basically astrologists in pinstripes.

    Or just use the "mshPDC" guest ID on Betaplace. It was always a public ID, and should still work.
