It's the abstraction layer that makes mono work now and within 10 years, 
just like a small C program from 1973 still does on unix/linux.

Abstraction can make things slower, but choose which programmer's 
depression you wanna get...  redeveloping all your stuff when some firm 
that wants from you ...   If you wanna be called "stupid" every 5 years 
or so, because some guy decided to introduce new concepts or a newer 
programming language, that didn't add much new, because we eg all had 
our own sources and made a software castle.
