    Default Mono 2.8 Is Out With C# 4.0, Better Performance

    Phoronix: Mono 2.8 Is Out With C# 4.0, Better Performance

    While many in the open-source community do not like Mono on their system as a Microsoft .NET implementation for Linux (and other operating systems), for those interested in this C# compiler and run-time library, Mono 2.8 is now available for download. Mono 2.8 offers up a large number of improvements...

    WTF! Dude... the door was left wide open for a troll about M$ tainting Linux through mono or something like that. I figured since you weren't burning shit up on Gnome vs KDE you'd at least make it up to us elsewhere.

    Are you going through a personal crisis? *slap* Snap out of it man...

    Nothing like that, I honestly love Mono. The fact that it brings out the trolls in force is just icing on the cake.

    Great!
    All of us mono fans let's shout out "We need more mono crap!"
    Amen!

    Defensive much. He just said I can't wait for this to hit his ubuntu repository. So I assume he's going to download it.

    I however hate MONO and won't tolerate it on my computer. But that's my call.

    How closely related are Mono and LLVM? The fact that they both just released new versions that use the same version numbers suggests to me that there is a strong link between the two.

    They're not related at all - the matching version numbers is pure coincidence.

    Why we need specifically mono crap? We need for sure more and better programs but I don't understand why to belong to a specific framework or toolkit?

    Anyway, I always found the work of mono developers a pure mazochism. I mean is a thing to spend your time developing for a small community like the FOSS one, but to develop something that divides this small target even more is idiocy. For sure they can find other and more welcome alternatives.

    Exactly. We don't need it at all. Mono apps offer no single real advantage over other Linux apps. Let's take Gnote which is consuming less memory, starts faster and doesn't depend on 50MB or so mono crap. The same about Shotwell compared to f-spot. F-spot just sucks while Shotwell is very fast.
