@h99, they seem to be working in partnership. MS has probably already tried to buy them because they like certain parts of mono’s tool chain (the phone-friendly bits), but Mono have a foot in the Linux realm and to there credit they’ve built a business that sustains the development of Mono. Still, I’m no expert.
Its a bit strange to think there will effectively be 2 .NETs out there, capable of running of lots of different systems. At that time I think people will side with MS, but who knows what the future holds.
As long a .NET developers can envisage making apps beyond Windows and they can stay inside the MS eco-system. they’ll be happy to assist them, for now. OS X/Linux .NET sounds good from a vvvv point of view too.
@Joreg, okay, I wouldn’t know what goes into it, but the impression I have is that the gap between the two libraries has closed significantly that it could be possible to test it, but I don’t understand the ins-and-outs.
But just imagine how happy designers would be to have vvvv running with Syphon? ;-)
