Mono decided to try to play nicely with Microsoft because they thought 
Bill was only a bully because the other kids were mean to him. DotGNU 
didn't mind talking to him but they weren't going to use his bat and 
ball in case he lost his temper and took them home half way through 
their game.

I don't get it. When Microsoft gave up trying to change the rules with 
their DRM proposals why didn't the projects merge their efforts? Was it 
because of a few harsh words they said about each other in the early 
days or are there fundamental differences between the two projects?

I need to learn to program in C# over the weekend so any advice will be 
welcome. I'm leaning towards Mono because it seems more complete but 
clearly DotGNU has the moral high  ground,
