Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The Mono and DotGNU projects are Open Source projects that,
after several years of development, are beginning to bear fruit.
Mono aims to create an open source implementation of Microsoft's
.NET application frameworks and services. It includes a C#
compiler, a runtime for the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI or
