I'm a Windows .Net desktop application developer at work and a Linux
user at home.
I've been lurking on this list for several years and fiddled with Mono
and Mono Develop once and a while to see how it's coming along. It gets
better each time I revisit a project, but I'm usually forced to drop the
GUI and start over each time. I'm probably just taking too long to keep
up with changes in Stetic.
However, my decision to wait around isn't because I see Mono and Mono
Develop as a toy. I've seen enormous progress since I started watching
and hope one day soon things will stabilize enough that I'll be able to
work part time on a project without rebuilding the GUI from scratch.
Until then, it won't be "time for me yet" either.
I know that I'll eventually be building cross platform .Net applications
"at work" as well as "at home" using Mono. I wonder how many of us are
