Open Source fans try to outflank .Net

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Even as Microsoft touts the open availability of the underpinnings of its .Net initiative,
open-source advocates are working to make sure .Net isn't a Microsoft-only technology

Ximian, a Boston company that works on the Gnome user interface for Linux, is scheduled to
announce Monday a software project called "Mono" intended to compete against Microsoft.Net,
according to sources familiar with the plan."
