That's not open source, that's readable source, you can't fork it or use
it, nor merge it with mono & have an official .net framework for linux etc.
My thoughts are, if we did have this there'd be more appetite/scope to
implement in .net in corporates and environments where linux and/or java
rule. Where I work mono isn't an option as there's no other companies of
our size using it to the scale we use java, but if a Microsoft backed .net
made it to linux it may be an option (and I'm sure if ms open sourced it
mono would do most of the work to merge, ms would just need to stamp
