Turbocharging Linux with Mono

Presentation about current state of Mono and why it’s an important project for Linux community.

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).

As one of showcases, he also talks about Second Life migrating their LSL scripting language to Mono and gaining huge performance savings.
