Lets not call someone a retard. Keep it real. However, there are thousands of toy languages out there that will run "Hello World" and that doesn't make them a viable option to consider for developing a production application.
The author presented Mono and Mono development tools as an "option" to deliver a late Linux project. People who actually use Visual Studio and Mono will tell you Mono is not there yet. There are plenty of other examples of<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.NET apps that will not run on Mono. His example did not prove anything, except that Mono is capable of running some<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.NET apps, specifically Hello World.
This is all beside the point. Why combine Linux (mature and stable) + Mono (immature, beta and incomplete)? It doesn't make sense. The article comes off sounding novel and neato, but lacks a supporting argument for using Mono over other mature options on Windows or Linux.
