It seems that you were trying to prove that there are production efforts using DOTGNU on Linux, but I fail to see how your links apply.

I too fail to see how they apply. I should know better than to type
out an email before I have my morning coffee, I completely missed the
original context. (Just for the record, there is also the
Novell/Ximian mono project http://www.go-mono.com/, but I'd bet there
are no large graphics apps using it either). Sorry for the lame reply,
and thanks for the development work on ODE!
