Given that my signal to noise ratio is already at a white noise breaking 
point (and that I'm probably not alone here), can we please keep these 
kinds of tit-for-tat arguments, rhetoric, ad hominem attacks, and 
flirting off the devel-discuss list?  Surely facebook, twitter, digg, 
etc. should provide adequate bandwidth to meet these needs.  Thanks in 
advance for your cooperation in this matter.

Re: the shame of mono:  if you really want to defeat the Evil Empire, 
then stop wasting everyone's time posting about how terrible it is and 
get busy designing and/or working on an open source framework that can 
get the job done as well or better.  That's how things work around here, 
as should be clear from a decade or so of linux development.
