I'm asthonished to hear that the famous de Icaza of Gnome could be in charge of the disastrous mono project. But maybe it is just how it is to reverse engineering microsoft technologies. Any support by M$ would improve upon the product.
I've been running suse form nearly a decade and mono which is used in the zmd,rug (package updater) and beagle (desktop search).
