Any plans for the BitRock based installer? This one supports all distros 
and is good enough, easy enough, and will make most of the people happy.

Again, I'm thinking about Mono adoption. You've done an excellent job 
guys, we've probably one of the best software development platforms 
around, but then there're small details making it close to impossible to 
use for newcomers unless they're really (really) eager to use mono.

The good part is I think these details are really easy to fix, much 
easier than all the incredible work you do on a daily basis, but they 
need to be addressed.

We (I mean, Codice Sotftware) are trying to get in charge of the Solaris 
x86 (and hopefully SPARC) releases, building everything and so on, but 
as you've probably noticed we weren't able to finish it yet.

But even more important than the Solaris, BSDs and everything else, IMHO 
it is making 2.0 *easy to install* on any Linux distro.

I'll post about Solaris once we (hopefully) make it work, and I think 
*now* is the time for all of you to blog about how to set up Mono 2.0. 
I'm not only talking about the mono team but the rest of the people 
reading this list regularly. Let's talk about the new 2.0! And let's 
start by telling everyone how to put their hands on it!
