Looks like Microsoft is getting around to formally addressing blogging with server-side tools.
Jeffrey McManus, who works for eBay, wrote a command-line utility that fetches the current eBay categories and tells you what has changed since the last time you downloaded it. The reason I’m posting about it here is that Jeffrey is asking folks to test out the C# script on a Mono/Linux platform.
I spoke a little bit about Mono at the M&T conference last month, so for those of you who were at the session, this is an example of how the .NET framework is being ported to other platforms. It may eventually be feasible to run most .NET apps on Linux as easily as on Windows.
The latest release of Mono now fully supports ASP.NET which means it should be feasible to run ASP.NET code under the Apache web server. Mono is an open source implementation of the .NET framework.
