According to de Icaza, Mono has found success among enterprise developers, who use it to run applications on Linux servers. It has also seen use among embedded developers, and as a "gaming engine." However, it's original intended purpose was to further the Linux desktop, says de Icaza, himself a desktop Linux user for more than eleven years.

Other topics discussed in the interview include:
  • Moonlight, the Mono Project's implementation of Microsoft's Silverlight technology
  • Mono Develop, the IDE
  • Future Mono support for "C## eval," a feature "not even Java" has, according to de Icaza
  • The Mono Project's alleged exposure to patent threats
  • Mono's use on embedded systems such as the Wii, iPhone, XBox, and Playstation3
  • Lots more!
