[Mono-list] I give up

Hi Marcus,

Of course, Mono is still under development, but the most
important components are there, and they work. Here, at
Agamura, we are developing a sophisticated online gaming
delivery network on Linux with Mono, and up to now, we
have had just few problems... Furthermore, when we report
a bug, it is always fixed in a short time!

Mono's implementation of ASP.NET is also usable and
mod_mono/apache seems to be faster than .NET/ISS.

We use NAnt as build tool, and we are able to compile a
project either on Linux or MS Windows with no changes
(even if we compile on Windows just for test purposes).

I think Mono will be one of the best .NET alternatives...
and don't forget that behind Mono there is a company
like Novell...

So, don't feel frustrated and go ahead.
