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

.Net is indeed a good technology, but is developed with Windows in mind, so it will never be optimized for multiplataform programming, no matter how much effort Mono's team put on it, it will always behind official .Net version...

And there's always the patent FUD from Microsoft, you can never be 100% safe when you are talking about Microsoft.. Just look at their history.

And besides all of that, I don't think .net is a so great technology that it worth the problem, we have awesome technologies like Qt4 that are much faster than mono, and very easy to develop, and much more powerful too (I don't think you can do things like Widget on Canvas on Mono)
