Mono

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 03, 2006 06:40 PM
Mono is still far behind. For<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.net developers that need the generics, good database support you still have to use<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.NET.

Compile a program which has one of these in it:
List L = new List();
SqlCommand S = new SQLCommand();

Two important parts of<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.NET among a lot of others that are not available and are critical for modern programming. If Mono is up to specs with<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.NET 2.0<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.NET will be in version 3 with LINQ.
Mono needs a substantial amount of support will it ever reach the same level. Just look at the docs. They are incomplete and/or out of date.
No professionla programmer can work with that.
