    Microsoft is not kind of vulcano you will be allowed to leave without leaving all your work in volcano as well. Speaking of free geothermal energy from msvolcano, do you mean piracy?

    Why I don't want mono on Linux:
    it's slow, it's crap from ms, it uses patented tech, Icaza is a lier and he's not fair with us, there are far better options - Qt, vala.

    Why I do want Mono!

    Why I do want Mono on Linux:
    - it is another option, for desktop development is better than Java. Why people don't bash Java as Oracle sued eventually. They don't offer a Community Promise that Microsoft did
    - Mono offers a decent runtime by default to develop in Ubuntu. Compare with Gtk+/C and you will understand why. If you use paired with LLVM JIT it gets impresive performance, tested by miself
    - It does not break at least no public patent. Why people complaining don't say: we don't want WebM, Apple will attack Google eventually for patents? Or we don't want OpenOffice, let's use KOffice every time
    - How can you start using Linux if you are locked in with .Net if you develop on Windows? You may start by migrating your server from Windows to XSP/Mono with Linux. This is the reason why some people did not migrate to Linux till Wine was capable to run their beloved game
    At the end I just want to congratulate them to their achievement, SGen bug fixing makes it really juicy and I really hope them the best!

    Netflix requires Silverlight with DRM.
    So once mono has DRM on linux you will wake up.

    Please, please never wake up, just take this kilogramm of sleeping pils and some alcohol.

    In the corrupt country where I currently live (the Microsoft Kingdom of the Netherlands) Silverlight is used by about every broadcaster to deliver tv programs over the Internet. But their content is usually shit anyways, not comparable with the top notch content from Transmission

    Some examples:

    It's not used very much on the web (fortunately). Microsoft is now placing it as a quick 'n' dirty tool for line-of-buisiness applications. It actually is quite valuable there as it simplifies distributions in corporate intranets.

    This is funny. One complanis that Moonlight is worthless without DRM. The other complains that Moonlight installs DRM behind his back.

    Fact: Mono/Moonlight do not support DRM at all and don't install anything behind your back. This is why Netflix doesn't work - and won't work in the foreseeable future. Your best solution is to bugger them for HTML5 support or a standalone player.
