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

Nice thread explaining lots of the issues ppl have with Mono:

If anyone is familiar with DeIcaza and his past projects he will see that Miguel has an affinity for copying
Microsoft technologies. And that is exactly the problem with Mono. It is a sub-par clone of microsoft's implementation
with no reason to exist whatsoever. Java was there before Mono but it wasn't chosen because of FUD and politics
from the Mono camp. Now that it is opensource, it will finally nail the coffin shut.

I see the arguments about portability and developers moving from windows to linux because of mono as a bad
joke. One must have lost touch with reality to use these delusions as arguments.
