Mono Project In a recent interview with the online edition of the Austrian daily Newspaper Der Standard, Mono project-lead Miguel de Icaza pleads for a cooperation between Mono and Microsoft's .Net: "I think that the deal should include a technical Mono/.NET collaboration, and even go as far as Microsoft recommending Mono for all of their developers looking at migration."

So in order to avoid having them consider other development frameworks like Java, which are totally not under their control, they might "recommend" a framework they are indirekt control over, e.g. they control the direction of .Net, thus controlling what mono will have to do as well.


Nicely said and I certainly didn't see it that way. But what if a day comes where Mono is more feature rich, better supported and commands a larger number of developers than .Net (however unlikely)? Do you really see MS lay down and give up? Or, much more likely IMO, start a patent and/or IP infringement lawsuit?
