In issue 78 of Linux Format, on the shelves now, we have an interview with Edd Dumbill and Niel Bornstein - two prominent Mono coders who've written a book on the open source .NET implementation. Here's a few of the questions we asked, along with their answers:

At home, I have an ADSL connection with a single public IP (fixed IP, even if it's served through DHCP). What I wanted was to be able to connect my old laptop to the Internet using the existing SuSE box. Since I want to make it as simple as possible, I won't use a supplementary hub. My shopping list is very minimalistic.

When the Mozilla Foundation turns to the public for money, it happily assumes the mantle of a penniless public institution asking for charity. Over 10,000 FireFox fans drew deep into their own pockets to place an expensive two-page advertisement for the browser in the New York Times 15 months ago.
