You must not read Slashdot.

Miguel de Icaza of GNOME/Mono fame is working on creating a .NET platform 
from GNOME, which should work on all GNOME supported UNIXes and UNIX variants.

He's really been taking it in the shorts over it, too.

See http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/23919.html and/or search Slashdot 
(under "older stuff") for, say, ".NET Miguel" or for even more fun ".NET 
Miguel RMS".
