I'm Lucas Fialho Zawacki a Computer Science undergrad at UFRGS
university in Brazil. I have 4
years of experience as a programmer and I'm well versed in C/C++,
Ruby, Lua as well as some other languages.
I have a lot of experience with Windows programming, mostly because
I'm also a contributor to the Wine project and have worked with them
for last year's GSoC.

As you may know, Wine is not so useful when applications mix .NET with
native code and I've always wondered
why Mono couldn't help there. In the past few days I did the reading
about and I reckon the WPF would
help in this regard. From what I gather, there's little interest in
implementing this due to the size of the project and
the convergence with Silverlight. Well I'm interested.

I understand this is a huge undertaking so I ask for ways to limit the
scope of such a project to make it feasible in a summer? Maybe it's
possible to propose a "port" of the intersection the API has with

I wait for your feedback. I'm also hanging around at #mono as 'lfz'.

Best regards
