Miguel presents Mono as a way to make MS .NET developers easily port their applications to Linux. With a huge amount of applications running on Mono without modification. Right now it’s 11% and by the end of summer he expects that to be about 60%, plus another 25% of applications to be easily portable to be cross-platform (about a week of work each).
