[Mono-dev] Mono performance rocks!

Well, both IO performance and design play a role, but what I think is 
important is pointing that using Mono/C# is not a handicap to achieve good 

About svn vs git or mercurial: well, svn (like Plastic) is centralized. 
AFAIK git is distributed, so no central rep is used. It has its advantages, 
but is also not appropiate in many environments. And they can implement many 
operations by just "copying" files (no network operations are required).

Another good poing in .NET/Mono is that we are using Remoting for data 
transmission, and it is proving to be very, very efficient.
