Change is a-comin'

I've been watching the progress of Mono for a while now, but until quite recently it's not been feature-rich enough to support porting my ASP.Net projects.

In this blog entry, Miguel de Icaza highlights how SplendidCRM was ported in a couple of hours thanks to a VMWare image of a fully-configured Mono development environment.

This is something I'm going to HAVE to install and play with - being able to deploy ASP.Net web sites on Linux, or even better virtualised Linux instances is going to be a very cost-effective and scalable solution - particularly if you add Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud for dynamic scalability.
