SD Times also promotes Mono. It's sponsored by Microsoft.

Microsoft more tightly controls some other 'development' 'magazines'.

"You want to infiltrate those. Again, thereâs two categories. Thereâs those that 
are controlled by vendors; like MSJ; we control that. And thereâs those that are 
independent. [...] So thatâs how you use journals that we control. The ones that 
third parties control, like the WinTech Journal, you want to infiltrate."
