Mono puts Microsoft .Net Framework on Linux and OSX

I’ve been very nose deep into open source technologies the last year working hard on some projects with Technovated and now recently Kindo. I was reading a recent email from a friend in the Microsoft world and they had been recommended Mono. Imagine my surprise to see the .Net Framework running on Linux, OSX, BSD, and Solaris.

“Mono is a software platform designed to allow developers to easily create cross platform applications. It is an open source implementation of Microsoft’s .Net Framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Runtime. We feel that by embracing a successful, standardized software platform, we can lower the barriers to producing great applications for Linux.”

Taken from ‘What is Mono‘.

I clearly need to do a bit more technology reading.
