[Mono-list] .NET Core

We do indeed regularly contribute to and take code from .NET Core to replace old/buggy parts of Mono's class libraries where it makes sense. This is an ongoing process.

.NET Core is currently focused on server-side application development, while Mono is primarily used in Xamarin/Unity for mobile or game development.

MonoDevelop is still being developed because it is the foundation for Visual Studio for Mac (formerly Xamarin Studio) and is a great IDE for both mobile development with Xamarin or web app development with .NET Core / ASP.NET Core if you're on macOS.

Hope that helps,

At first, I thought it was going to be just an open-source implementation of the BCL, and that the Mono project was going to contribute to parts of it and adopt other parts as well. I thought it was going to be something transparent for the application programmer.
