When .NET first came out there were people who pointed out its closed-source nature and denigrated it for that. So then there was a project called MONO which was supposed to be a Unix version of .NET (sorry if I don't have all the details right). After that it fell off the radar and I never heard of it again -- which isn't surprising because I wasn't working with either .NET or any form of Unix, but I did read the news and opinions on the web. But googling it now I see it still exists. Is that relevant to anything?
I think the Mono project would now get Microsoft's attention which would help .NET run on Linux.

Did a rm -R / to find out that I lost my entire Linux installation!

The decision to support OS X is a curious one, given that it's not much of a deployment platform. It seems that Microsoft acknowledges that OS X (and Apple hardware) is what many developers want to use in their daily work. But I doubt that Apple will return the favor and allow iOS development to happen on Windows :-)
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
