[News] .Net in Linux Declines - Good News for Open Source

Mono's demise bad news for open source

,----[ Quote ]
| It's also based on Windows technology. Mono is a "clean-room"
| clone of Microsoft's .Net development platform, written for
| Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.
| When Novell's Miguel de Icaza first began work on Mono, people
| said he was crazy.


Neil McAllister is an Open Source basher. This was said many times before in
a variety of Web sites, so his views on the trend/event is worth ignoring
while the demise of .Net is the news worth cheering about. Mono is an IP
timebomb from Novell.

| There are a lot of great new programs and innovations expected
| in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Novell-led Mono project isn't
| one of them.

| Use of Visual Basic has dropped 35% since the spring, says a
| poll of more than 430 North American developers done by research
| company Evans Data.

| Developers have abandoned Microsoft's Visual Basic in droves
| during the last six months, and they're using Java more than any
| other development language, according to a recently published
| survey. 


Study: Developers Favor Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| "Regardless of what kind of developer you are, you're still trying to
| make a living, and target the operating system that?s controlling the
| market."
| However, in the most recent survey, the developers' forecast of their
| target platform has changed. For the first time, these developers said
| that in the next 12 to 18 months they expect to be developing more Linux
| apps than Windows apps.
