Hi all,

Mono 1.0 was shipped awhile ago, and I'm really excited
about that... but now the natural question is:

  "Is Mono ready to compete with MS .NET in real business?"

... and one more question is

  "Will Novell provide support, documentation, etc.?"
  "If yes, by when?"

These two questions are quite important: companies
cannot decide for Mono just because Mono is a nice

Behind MS .NET there is a huge development team,
support, documentation, and continuity... and I
think Novell should offer the same, but till now
I don't see anything in that way.

You guys at Novell, could you tell us something more
about your plans to push Mono into the market as an
effective MS .NET alternative?

I hope not to hurt you all! I'm just trying to understand
whether or not Mono is the right choice for our business.
