With all due respect Miguel, until you or somebody in an equaly authorative
position do make some statements about what Mono is then it can only be
expected that people will not know what Mono is.

People have a hard enough time knowing what .NET is (and normally get it
wrong), never mind taking another step to figure out what Mono is.

Might not be crucial at this point, but when the day comes that you are
perhaps interested in people using Mono don't be suprised as they dismiss it
as a Web Services platform, strategy for the New World Order or whatever and
then dismiss it as of no interest to them as developers.

This can only get worse as people start quoting eroneous articles as
authorative fact.... let Chines whispers run a couple of cycles and see what
you end up with... Mono is an initiative to impliment MS Passports on Unix.
