Sure... Linux runs on every PDA out there....
Mr. Paolo, it seems that you've managed to pass your anger against
microsoft in a single "textual" sentence. No problem... I'm also not
very fond of it either. But, as it seems, when the market DO buy those
PDAs, and when people ONLY use them, if you want to sell a product,
you have to develop for that OS... There's no point in so much anger,
is there? This isn't ideological discussion. It's a fact!

Hmmm... After all... Mono do exist after a product from Microsoft... 

If people want to change this scenario, it's not only in the hands of
the tool developers, it's also in the hands of the application
developers. If they don't have an option, they choose for what they
got... If when they get interested in alternatives, they got an answer
like yours.. Well... I'm glad this isn't always the case...

Now guess what the end-user will choose...

Well... I feel honored that you give me permission to contribute or
*hire* someone to do it.

Good luck with that.
Let me make one thing clear and straight: I didn't like your answer.
You deserve everyone's respect for your efforts in the open-source
community, and that's it. I asked you a simple question, without
offending anyone. If you can't control your idealisms and respect the
others, well... Email me privately that I will answer you adequately.

As for this mailing-list, all I have to ask is sorry for this post. 
No further messages will be necessary in this thread.
