cheers paul, 
you`re right, the mono project is avail for freebsd, /usr/ports/*/mono 
also GNU is developing .net fmwrk for .NET. according to our latest test, it works okay, but it`s still not ready for productional systems. (mono i mean). also AFAIK nowdays lotsa companies are developing their own .net compiler/fmwrk.

Basically with .NET you get all the collaboration between apps/db/web/whatsoever. 

is this the replacement for java? i suppose yes;)
