What does Microsoft putting .NET on Linux mean to us?

Author: JT Smith

From "I dont think it means much to the community at all.
If anything, it might be used against us, and make us lazy. Lets not let that happen!

As far as I can tell from all my investigations of Microsofts .NET, most of which by the pro-Microsoft developers in
my office.
The only thing of true value to the open source/free software community is SOAP. The rest is all server side code
for processing requests. So I dont see much value to us in what they are doing."
