Mono is dead, long live Mono

From today's long-awaited Mono announcement:

Today we start Xamarin, our new company focused on Mono-based products. These are some of the things that we will be doing at Xamarin:
  • Build a new commercial .NET offering for iOS
  • Build a new commercial .NET offering for Android
  • Continue to contribute, maintain and develop the open source Mono and Moonlight components.
  • Explore the Moonlight opportunities in the mobile space and the Mac appstore.

-- Miguel de Icaza

I'm glad to see that the Mono team was able to get back on their feet so quickly, and that their new products will be source-compatible with MonoTouch and Mono for Android - too bad they couldn't keep the rights to those products as well. Do yourself a favor and read the whole release.
