Um, since the first release of .NET, there are now .NET specific
incompatible versions of Python, Ruby, Java, C/C++...
And they're being pushed as "official", even though they're actually
being run by Microsoft behind the scenes. So yeah, I'd say it's a black
hole sucking down all my favorite open-source software.

There is no demand for Mono, except for the artificial ones created by
Miguel De Icaza to justify starting it in the first place. C# is a
brand new language, and why would anyone want to run VB in anything
other than Windows? The only "demand" for Mono is the desire of Miguel
and certain other developers to BURY Java as deep as they can by
substituting C# in its place. And Microsoft goes along with this
because THEY control C#, and can do the classic embrace and extend on it
if they have to, screwing over anyone who relies heavily on it.
