    What he' saying is the apps are a mess, and mono itself is well enough a working language.

          Well, I guess I got all worked up over nothing. Even the article said Windows and OSX though and left out Linux, so I almost felt like this wasn't phoronix hate spin for once. It seems disengenuous for them to leave out Linux as the target of their development studio when developers are by far the largest workforce users of GNU oses.

          Statically typed bytecode targeted language. Like Java, not like Scala. Not static vs dynamic linking.

            Xamarin isn't a Linux company. Xamarin Studio doesn't have an official Linux release, as Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS aren't available for Linux.

            Xamarin Studio, however, is just a badged version of MonoDevelop 4.0 - like Chrome/Chromium. And MonoDevelop continues to work fine on Linux.

                Booth mono and monodevelop is released for linux. But the article is kinda off.

                  All of your points are NOT based on factual evidence. When Mono3 comes your ignorance should be ignored...
                  BTW, the Linux community includes me.

                    Clearly his statements are nonsense.

                    But whether or not a framework is good is largely unrelated to whether apps written with that framework are good. You can make a heavy C app and a light C# app fairly easily.

                      Yes that is true, but I would argue it is far more productive and generally easier to write large code bases with a language like C# vs C/C++. Depends on the context but I think most applications we use on a daily basis would fall in that category, even games.
