Codesta: What is your view of projects like Mono and your general
opinion of bringing C# and the CLR to non-Microsoft platforms?

Peter Hallam: I think the Mono project is a great validation of our
direction with C# and the CLR. It's great to see an independent
implementation of C# and the CLR. I look forward to seeing what they
C# and the Common Language Infrastructure (the CLI, a subset of the full
Microsoft CLR) have been accepted as international standards by ECMA.
Microsoft has also released Rotor, a shared source implementation of C#
and the CLI which targets Windows XP, FreeBSD, and more recently Mac OS
X 10.2.
