It sounds like the Mono folks are still falling for the hype from a couple of years ago -- that soon everything would be written in Java.
In fact, Java seems to have crested, and has given a little ground against C++ in terms of job listings during the last 12 months. And of course truly open source upstarts like Python have gained a lot more respect in the last year or so. And of course good old C remains the most widely used language for open source development. And of course functional programming language hackers continue to develop open source tools in their favorite languages. And then there's Perl (and hopefully Perl 6 and Parrot).
Java will never take over the world. C# will never take over the world. And Mono will definitely never take over the world.
