Mono is evil software and is a mere trojan carrying a patent bomb from  
Microsoft waiting to explode. Imagine a situation where hundreds of  
essential packages based on Mono exists in Ubuntu, Office apps,  
Internet apps, etc. and Microsoft decides to pull their often  
advertised patent stunt. End of Ubuntu.

The harm has already been done by letting monodevelop into the  
distribution. Although I would advocate a removal, the next-best thing  
is to leave monodevelop at version 1.0

Sorry Jo...
