Totally agree with @daniel except that I am not agree the part where said we
not thanks/appreciate Ubuntu team.
I don't know about the rest of the world but for me and the people that I
introduce to /talk with them about Ubuntu they all appreciate the great
afford and policing put into get this excellent distro for us.

Perhap using Window & develop in .NET Framework with just click and get
thing work make me junior coder a lazy labor. However to abandon Windows
camp and join Linux my option is to pick popular Linux distro and can do my
job on it that how I feel having mono ready and up to date on the Ubuntu
(official support :D) would be a big plus.

Build one run every where !
