    Wasn't Adobe working on a Flash to HTML5 converter? Case closed.

    Yes, but flash competing with FLOSS doesn't make me a hippo. It will be different if I'd prefer flash, gnash over html5 etc. I have an idea - mono = gnash. Now you should know why both are bad.

    I just have it on my mind and thought it's obvious mono isn't 100% compatible with .Net.

    Is Qt better than MFC? Qt is not a MFC replacement, a Gtk one, a Windows.Forms one or a Swing one... Qt is crap...
    Is that similar with your comment.
    Mono strides to not be compatible with .Net but with ECMA specs. Mono is as .Net (ECMA compatible) as Linux is Unix, yet both are POSIX compatible.
    Last time some mono fanboys were saying mono is a .Net for Linux, so this is what I was basing on. If it's not that way it doesn't matter overall. It puts it into probably even worse situation, because it won't be so 'attractive' for Windows .Net programmers.

    About Webkit was a more realistic down to earth thing as people that use it like Chrome cannot get back to use KHtms over the night, as Qt, to not say a line about KdeLibs are not working with Android, are just a custom port for Windows which will blow download budget of Google Chrome out of the water, Gnome's help is based on WebKit too, so they cannot replace it with KHtml. I'm puzzled how you did not find this as being more dangerous for your future.
    Qt is working on Android. Maybe you're right Android and Chrome cannot get back to use khtml over night, but something like this is much easier to do than migration from mono to something else - you have to rewrite entire application. There's also a significant difference between mono and webkit. Webkit serves to display html content and not to build your entire applications in some webkit language.

    I am curious how you can backup your statement that Mono intends to be a .Net compatible clone, when in fact have its own development.
    http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page

    Run .Net applications on Linux etc. It was obvious to me it has to be compatible with .Net.

    In the rest, which is your application you contributed on, in the last 10 years? May you give just a bug report, or a translation from English to Spanish or some icons that you contribute to any OSS project? I never contributed to Mono but I did contribute to FreePascal/Lazarus, I put bug reports in MonoDevelop, Ubuntu, and I work as full time developer in an F/OSS project in real life.
    I mainly report and try to fix bugs. I was doing this mainly for Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Arch, KDE and one time to Linux kernel. I thought about helping Kubuntu in translations, but it seems it's incredibly messed up, so I'll rather wait for Mageia.

    Ha, now that Gnome 3 is out, KDE's days are numbered. Gnome 3 + Unity + Mono = teh shit.

    Obviously V!NCENT wasn't being serious, he is just trying to flirt with BlackStar again. That's what he does.

    Where did I say you prefer flash?

    Because they are useful, duh.

    Why do ffmpeg and x264 implement patented algorithms?

    Besides, the front page of the Mono website says:

    Sponsored by Novell, Mono is an open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET Framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Runtime.
    ".NET Framework" and "Common Language Runtime" aren't generic standards-based terms, they're the names of Microsoft software.
