The progress on Mono is amazing.

15 rpms for three redhat distros, 5 for Mandrake, 9 debian packages --
29 in all. One Windows setup wizard with a relocatable install that
runs on Windows releases pre-dating all of them (and most of Linux).

I hope someday Linux can figure out how to do this. Ximian, please
help us developers find a way to independently build and distribute
one binary, which is distributed in a single installer, and which
yeilds a relocatable package, that can be installed on a large
percentage of Linux machines, that remains compatible for a couple

Sorry, I can wish can't I?
