Congrats to the winners of the recently concluded “Race to Linux 2.0″ context. Hosted by DevX and jointly sponsored by Novell, Mainsoft and IBM, the “Race to Linux 2.0″ challenged developers to see how quickly they could port an application from Windows to Linux. The Novell-sponsored Mono project was one of the key tools developers used in the contest. One of the grand prize winners was Loune Lam, a software developer from Australia, who used Mono to port Microsoft’s Small Business Starter Kit to Linux in 5 hours and 26 minutes.
You can see more about the contest, and the winners, here. Kudos again to the winners, and the nearly 600 participanting developers.
