The Mono Project

The Mono project is an attempt to create an open source, portable version of Microsoft’s .NET framework. They announced a version 0.7 release that has some early work on the just-in-time compiler (JIT) as well as various other improvements. I’m not necessarily recommending this for use for anything, heck, I think .NET is a huge rabbit hole that a lot of programmers are going to break a leg in. But I find all of this interesting and you don’t applaud for a dancing bear because he dances well
