The DotGNU developers say that while they realize that the Microsoft .NET platform is a powerful concept, its commercialization by a single company may be threatening the free software movement. There are nonetheless a lot of open source projects being made in C#.
Currently, the main DotGNU software release is Portable.NET, an implementation of the Common Language Infrastructure that is able to compile and run .NET-compilable languages such as C# and VB.NET, among others, on numerous computing platforms. It is a "language agnostic" platform in the sense that many languages can use one universal set of APIs.
Other DotGNU-affiliated projects include phpGroupWare , a web-based collaborative software suite, and DGEE , a server for web services built upon Portable.NET.
