IMHO Mono want get it until is developed a Desktop shell replacement for Windows
Projects are starting to abound, like ( http://www.colinux.org/ ) for windows interoperability, but what about the most desktop logic ones ??
Why there isnt already a Windows KDE or Gnome shell replacement ??...
Sure, its very much missed, common Icons, color engine, menu engine, fonts(?), window controls and basic dialogue widgets, (to name a few)...
...then we could have a common "Open-Source" toolkit meta-framework, and a common Windows shell replacment engine...
Then misture of windows based Machines and Linux based machines could have a common interface,... the windows leveling force will be faded away... and projects like Mono could rock, if M$ dont start(like before) a incompatibility or a litigation program...
