    Mono is meant to exist because microsoft knows one day,soon or later, linux will take over windows. doing mono will ensure microsoft to live within linux and act like a patent troll like they already do with android. of course there are plenty of reasons why mono may be a good thing, but that doesn't change the reason microsoft is doing all this.

    Default Microsoft open-sourced something?

    The Microsoft Entity Framework is an object-relational mapping framework for .NET that Microsoft recently open-sourced under the Apache 2.0 License.
    Just wanted to make sure that was seen. Microsoft certainly deserves much of the hate that's aimed its way, but sometimes it gets so over the top.............

    This is certainly a step in the right direction. Even they see the light: Open source is the future.

    What, did they open source their .NET implementation?

    No? Then please go away.

    This is great.
    It is very useful for people wishing to run their ASP.NET web applications on Mono.

    I think Entity Framework is pretty popular with enterprise ASP.NET MVC web applications.

    sadly nope, microsoft did this not for the goodness of their heart or cause they believe in open source[they not], they do it for this reasons:

    1.) to add value to the closed source version[which has more features and is windows only btw] so they can say .NET is not windows only and you can use it in other OSes[which is very unlikely to happen since mono is quite behind] but is good for PR.
    2.) to avoid monopoly lawsuits in euro zone cuz .NET is "open source" and again good for PR.
    3.) xamarian works good as charity to deduce taxes and as troy horse[in theory cuz .NET outside windows is less than non existant].
    4.) possible patent wreck in the future when they need to milk some cash from big sharks that migrated to Mono [they say no but microsoft is well microsoft]
    5.) avoid migration to other toolkit/languages promising "multiplataform greatness" so they can keep milking you in windows[dubious advertisement but most sysadmin in bussiness arent the sharper knife of the box]

    is faster and more secure to use PHP than migrate to mono ASP.NET, i know lots of ppl that tried and preferred to use php/java instead[after several rage kicks to the servers and mad mad words]

    I have been developing PHP for years, and still do some PHP development at home.
    At my work place we use .NET.

    PHP is an interpreted language while .NET is compiled so .NET is much much faster than PHP.
    Also with .NET you have access to the whole .NET framework, a huge set of libraries which you can do much more than you can do with PHP.
    With ASP.NET you have a nice debugger and a huge framework.

    Comparing PHP to ASP.NET is comparing apples and pears. PHP is just a language. ASP.NET is a whole framework.
