Mono Project A huge 'discussion' took place on the desktop-devel mailing list of the GNOME project about a possible replacement for TomBoy, the Wiki-like note taking application-thing-program-utility written in Mono - it being written in Mono was the prime reason for the whole debate, which started here, and only got considerably nastier later on. "It would seem that lately there are a lot of FUD-spreading trolls crawling out of the woodwork trying to frighten people into thinking that GNOME somehow depends on Mono. Let's take a look at their most widely repeated claims."

Until Microsoft offers a signed memoradum stating that they have no interest in persuing groups creating compatible implementations of their technologies - I wouldn't rely to heavily on compatibility products.


Yea, we should all stop using Linux too because they've stated that Linux infringes on 235 of their patents and have threatened to sue.

Wake up and smell the coffee.
