F# 1.9.4.19 runs out of the box with Mono in Linux

Don Syme just announced a minor update to the F# environment, minor may be but of great interest to a certain community: it so happens that at some point F# stopped working properly in Linux, a workaround was published (and it actually works, but you've got to follow the instructions carefully). Well, not anymore, 1.9.4.19 works out of the box with Mono in Linux, you just have to download it, unzip it, and then happily type "mono fsi.exe":

So now I've got one less pretext for not writing that book "Learning to program the functional way in an open source environment using a cool Microsoft technology" that will make me famous...
