I've not been seeing Mono / C# used anywhere that matters to _me_, yet, but
that's probably a matter of time. I note:
That page features some of the usual Web 2.0 suspects: Medsphere
(startup in which VA $WHATEVER's Larry Augustin has been involved, and
that has the extremely ugly lawsuit against its founders for an
allegedly unauthorised public release of source code under GPLv2 -- see:
http://lwn.net/Articles/193731/), MindTouch, Mainsoft, Splendid CRM, and
SourceGear. I'd not heard of the rest, previously (except Novell
itself, of course).
The Mono site mentions that running ASP.NET developed Web code is a
frequent attraction for companies. Poor bastards.
