Geez, cut down on the FUD people. It's another programming language,
not a monstrous black hole sucking down all your favorite open source
software.
Um, since the first release of .NET, there are now .NET specific incompatible versions of Python, Ruby, Java, C/C++...

And they're being pushed as "official", even though they're actually being run by Microsoft behind the scenes. So yeah, I'd say it's a black hole sucking down all my favorite open-source software.
If you don't like mono, don't use it. It's there because there was a
demand for it, whether *you* like it or not. It's not harming you or
Fedora in any way
There is no demand for Mono, except for the artificial ones created by Miguel De Icaza to justify starting it in the first place. C# is a brand new language, and why would anyone want to run VB in anything other than Windows? The only "demand" for Mono is the desire of Miguel and certain other developers to BURY Java as deep as they can by substituting C# in its place. And Microsoft goes along with this because THEY control C#, and can do the classic embrace and extend on it if they have to, screwing over anyone who relies heavily on it.
