And something else, seems mono is doing a lot better then Java on Linux.
Two people claim that mono is doing better than Java on the Linux desktop
. But that blog post is laughable.
When it comes to desktop Linux applications, "Mono is clearly more popular than Java. I've been using desktop Linux as my primary desktop for three to four years, and use just a handful of Java apps day to day," O’Grady said.
I've been using desktop Linux as my primary desktop for seven years and the only Java apps I use day-to-day are Eclipse and ant. I don't even have Mono installed. Frankly, neither Java nor Mono has made an impact on the Linux desktop, but I'm not sure that either is aiming to so it's not a big deal.
