This is progress?

Just saw an article on Mono over at Sitepoint, and I stopped reading after the requisite. Hello World sample to write this entry (I’ll finish it later…).

Let’s compare, shall we…

public class HelloWorld {
static void Main() {
System.Console.WriteLine(“Hello World!”);

class HelloWorldApp {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println(“Hello World!”);

What’s all the buzz about? Where’s the beef improvement?

I can have quasi-open-source syntactic cruftyness from Sun, or open-source cruftyness from Mono, (but doesn’t it feel weird to write in a language built by someone decidely **un**-open source).

Isn’t it time we move on?
