But will MONO become a success and will the described scenario take place,
it is necessary there are many, many users of MONO. MONO only runs on Linux
so that means there must be many, many users of Linux. All those Linux/MONO
users stop using Windows on their desktops, because thats what we are
talking about. This must be a nightmare to uncle Bill.
Linux developers love C++. Unfortunately for this scenario .NET and MONO
needs managed C++. How many linux developers will go writing for a layer (
on Linux Mono can't become the OS like .NET on Windows) while they can
compile their code without changes for native apps?
Hey, what do I know ;-)
