Re: Some more thoughts on Java vs Mono debate

This is kind of irrelevant

Whether the goal of achieving cross platform compatability is achived or
not, this doesnt stop it being used in its own Linux/GNOME specific way
and no changing of standards by microsoft will affect that

Mono isn't just a clone of .NET, it is its own thing.


Agreed. But don't you think it is a huge loss if we can't use many of useful 3rd party libraries or tools built around Java or .NET for compatibility reasons?

If we're to adopt either .NET or Java, to be able to take advantage of industry support and  developer base behind each technology is very large benefit IMO. If we have to rewrite many of the libraries already exist in Java or .NET to use them in Linux/GNOME specific way, it'd be  wasting of time and cause fragmentation of community which the original posting of HP has mentioned.
