Been paying quite a bit of attention to it, as Mono would be the posibly the
only reason to move from Win32 to .Net, but it is quite a way off, even in
the quite advance state it is currently in. Admittily, most of the areas
where Mono lags behind the MS version are areas like GUI and all the Windows
specific stuff, neither of which would really affect FB SP's, but those are
the areas I would use Java for anyway.
