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

You must also hate the C and C++ programming languages as well, because they allow the creation of closed-source apps on Linux. As well as Java and pretty much any other compiled language you can build software on Linux with.

So, what language would you prefer to see used for, say, kernel development? Because right now, it's C/C++ and assembly, from what I can tell - and even GCC lets you compile (and thus run) closed-source apps on a Free Linux platform.
