Since Microsoft appears to have taken a hostile turn towards anything released with Windows 7, WMP 10, .NET .3.5 + working with Wine, it would be very interesting to see what the Mono team's stance is on integration with Wine and the path onward.  At one time it was very hostile, now it seems to have changed to at least neutral and maybe even what we call 'hallway' friendly.

Hmmm.  Maybe we need to widen the 'gene pool' to see if other applications are affected.
