[Mono-list] I give up
Thu, 8 Apr 2004 00:16:24 -0500
After trying to work with Mono, Portable.NET, Qt, and KDE, I've realized that
I'm fighting a battle that I cannot win. Mono supports Gtk# (and GTK+) to the
exclusion of any other platform. Portable.NET is behind their own SWF
implementation, but at least they are a bit more agnostic. The Qt/KDE
community seems to find the entire concept of C# and its use of metadata and
JIT compilation repulsive.
I'm tired of trying and failing. I'm tired of having no one to support me. I'm
tired of feeling isolated and alone.
It's just not worth it. Maybe I will end up Windows XP and .NET. Who knows. I
just know that the Free software community has got to be the most hostile and
intolerant group of people I have ever encountered.
