Mono in Fedora 5

I’ve been playing with mono since pre-1.0 days. If you haven’t heard of it, climb out from the rock you’re hiding under! It was just released that mono will be included in the Fedora Core 5 distribution. I believe that this could point to faster mainstreaming of the .NET port to Linux, which is one step closer to the ever ellusive cross-platform (heterogenous) days we are all longing for.

Sure, Java has been around for a long time, but let’s be realistic, a second cross-platform development option can only be a good thing. It should improve both! I’m not completely discounting options like perl (ActivePerl for Windows), or python, but those are niche options compared to Java, and hopefully soon mono.
