I know that [en:Mono(software)|Mono] is the open-source implementation of en:.NET_Framework|.Net, and that I hate [en:Microsoft|M$], but... I can't hate a framework. It's like to hate the [en:Plutonium] because we make the [en:AtomicBomb] with it! ;)
- I have had a little experience with Mono (a [en:Gecko(layoutengine)|Gecko#] and [en:GTK_Sharp|GTK#] based browser)... and it was very good. In particular, I like delegates very much.
<li>.Net and [en:C_Sharp|C#] specification are standardized at the [en:Ecma_International|ECMA]: it's one of the few times that M$ does things in the right way.</li></ol>
