Isn't that just a natural evolutionary process, which carries on from Bor-
land and others?


Then  come to consider KDevelop, Glade which has been around for ages, and
all  sorts of development tools for Web-based applications. Mono's  punch-
line  or even sales pitch might be "We bring the goodness of .NOT to  Lin-
ux".  Inherently,  it's  just a way of appealing to the  average  laymen's
minds,  using  analogies and terminology 'bridges'. How many  general-pur-
pose,  graphical application are called (an attempted) "Photoshop-killer",
as though Adobe has brought about the Holy Grail? People think in terms of
brands unfortunately. "Google this, Google that". People also have miscon-
ceptions  forged to their minds. "You need an anti-virus. You need to  de-
frag occasionally".

Best wishes,
