After 2.0 release, Miguel de Icaza reflects on Mono's past and future

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 81.44.131.210] on October 08, 2008 10:11 PM
"the same people who criticized Mono, which has always been free software and cross-platform, used to be far more tolerant towards Sun Microsystems'Java when it was still proprietary and ran only on platforms that Sun chose to support"

.net came to existence just to displace java, which came to existence to solve a problem. .Net was not necessary in the first place, and it was just parasiting java design.
Mono is just helping .net in embracing and extend a technology which nobody wanted.
Miguel says that people hates mono because its API comes from MS, but the fact is, Mono mimics .Net just because it comes from MS.
