    Thanks Michael for this interesting post. I'm also happy about C# not getting anywhere.

    Mono is also Open Source, so I don't understand the part about Yeaah Open Source, wwooooo. However, how does popularity impact on this? You want to force others to make interest in mono? If some people are interested the tool is already here, just pick it up.

    Strangely, the report's Sniff Test includes Gentoo but misses out on Debian which has almost 600 developers, active 24by7 (The Debian developers' coordinates can be found here: http://www.debian.org/devel/developers.coords)

    Debian is mentioned as aptosid (Debian distro) I guess, in slide 9, where there are two dots (Debian, and Mint?).

    Strange report.
