Perhaps your wording could be improved then.  Saying that you're not
going to "take mono seriously" effectively means that in your mind
Mono is reduced to a toy/hobby/not-serious project just because MD
doesn't have a winforms designer (a pretty big technical challenge).
That's how I interpreted it anyway, and in my experience that's what
it means to not take something seriously.

May I propose that what you meant to convey is that you are "not
seriously considering using Mono professionally?"
