VB is already supported via mbas. Okay, it is not quite there yet (IIRC,
late binding is still an issue), but otherwise, it works.

While I can't comment, I would imagine that it will be compliant with
whatever is available from the EMCA standard.

There is rather a nice book due out RSN called "Developing on Linux with
C# and .NET: The Mono Project" by Daniel Solin - this should answer lots
of things.

That's answered on the FAQ at go-mono.com



The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
