If you had been in Brussels for FOSDEM over the last few days you would've
had a completely different mono experience. Not only were plenty of folks
involved with mono there (from programmers to packagers to users), but there
was a room dedicated to mono and mono related presentations.

It was quite unlucky the power line broke, but if you're interested in
seeing some of the mono related talks that were recorded at FOSDEM they
shoul be available on the FOSDEM site over the next couple of days.
