      Mono is a fenomenal effort to bring all the .Net Technologies into other platforms and encourage programmers to develop an entirely new kind of applications that will run on every platform, not only Windows, Linux or Mac but also on products like the iPhone... excellent job Miguel...

      I love C# and am really glad that they have ported this much functionality to the other platforms.  Big props to Microsoft and the Mono guys!!
