Dot GNU (.GNU)
The DotGNU Project is really a meta-project that will consist of between ten and twenty subprojects. The main components of DotGNU are the DotGNU Platform and the DotGNU Virtual Identities system. DotGNU will be a complete replacement for the .NET strategy - it will not be a Free Software implementation of .NET.

NAnt is a .NET based build tool. In theory it is kind of like make without make's wrinkles. In practice it's a lot like Ant (http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/).

Instead, Nareau plans to make use of the many tools and protocols that already exist. Thus, the project will be built on top of Web services components like: Server software: Apache, parts of Zope, Jabber, Jakarta Client software: Mozilla, Komodo Protocols: SOAP, Kerberos.
