Who Should Support Mono?

In fact, Microsoft should support Mono. And it does something now! Mono project now has something called Moonlight runtime which enables Silverlight on Mac OS and Linux. Also there is a Lunar Eclipse project to replace Expression Blend.

More and more Linux distros start to support Mono, such as SuSE, Ubuntu, Debian, and Red Hat which makes Mono a much more well known runtime. So IMHO it is time to test your .NET applications to see if they are Mono compatible.

It is a pity that SourceGear Vault clients (command line and GUI) is not officially Mono compatible. Because Mono has implemented most of Windows Forms, a test would not be so hard.

I have tested CBC but the result is really useless. Why? Is there going to be a RAD Studio for Linux?
