There are lot of people who do .NET programming and the Linux alternative MONO. For some weird reason MONO is not working on armhf default Debian distribution which we use (as armhf performs better we ignored so far armel).

I have been playing around with Debian 6 for the past two weeks and overall quite happy with Debian but have noticed a slight sluggish feel when working with Gnome. (eg compared to Fedora 14)

Mono is an open-source project providing the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix.

Oh my LiveJournal drama. If you think blogs are nasty, LiveJournal + Debian stuff is really bad. Anyway, there are some Q&A offered up, which someone requested I look at. Time to dive in.
Alexander Reichle-Schmehl, a Debian developer who stated Debian’s position on Mono in the default Debian install last week, has clarified his statement on the issue in a new posting.
