-Mono is a Open Source implementation of the .NET Framework: it
-is made up of a runtime engine that implements the ECMA Common
-Language Infrastructure (CLI), a set of compilers that target
-the CLI, and a large collection of class libraries.
+Mono is a software platform designed to allow developers to easily create
+cross platform applications. It is an open source implementation of
+Microsoft's .Net Framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common
+Language Runtime. We feel that by embracing a successful, standardized
+software platform, we can lower the barriers to producing great applications
+for Linux.
+This requires libgdiplus.
