Ximian announces GPL version of .NET

Ximian has announced an open source initiative to implement a Linux version of Microsoft's .NET platform. Read the announcement about Mono to get the details.

Since this initiative will include a C# compiler and CLI run-time environment, this could lend a lot of momentum to this new language.

What makes CLI so attractive is that it makes it possible to run Python and Ruby as well, if these languages are ported to run in the CLI environment. What's the benefit? Because then the .NET environment and presumably all of the services written for .NET are automatically available to these languages.
