    Phoronix: Fedora 31 Aims To Finally Offer Mono 5 For Open-Source .NET Support

    While Fedora is generally known to ship the very latest upstream software with each release, Fedora has continued shipping Mono 4.8 even though Mono 5.0 shipped in May 2017. With the Fedora 31 release due out later in the year, they are finally working on switching to Mono 5...

    It would have been smarter to delete Mono completely. I really don't see the point of having what is effectively a platform that is stagnate and mostly unused as part of the distro.

        Too little too late. Efforts like this and Swift on Linux without the accompanying GUI and platform libraries are always too little. Open source the whole SDK/toolkit or GTFO.

          I could probably make the same argument about various language runtimes required for programs you consider indispensible but I have no interest in.

            It's like this is obviously nonsensical trolling but you really just don't care. You just dish it out anyway. I must say I'm very impressed.

              Honest question: without its integration with various Windows stuff, what does .Net bring to other platforms?

                  Thanks for the funny OS name. Ibm too have the motivation to prevent the Linux desktop success. Everyone should buy a mainframe server and not build these reasonable priced gaming and entertaining toys. Ibm and microsoft do a good job together. The Ryzen random lockup Linux kernel bug is made by IBM. You can fix that with Bios luckily.

                    I've seen that AirVPN's graphical client (eddie-ui) runs the windows exe on Mono when on Linux, and it looks exactly the same as on Windows. So I'd say it could be a thing for crossplatform applications. https://github.com/AirVPN/Eddie

                    Then again, on OpenSUSE the exit button or clicking the X in KDE's bar does not work (I have to go and terminate Mono if I want to close that application), but everything else works.

                    I'm actually using Qomui, which is an unofficial but Linux native Python/Qt client for AirVPN and other services.

                    Still, Eddie in its current state would still work better than 99% of other VPNs where on Linux you have no client at all and can only manually run OpenVPN with config files, and running a VPN over a SSL or SSH tunnel is a PITA if you didn't set up your networking manually (which I guess isn't a thing in desktop/laptops).
