A number of people have said exactly the same thing: "I won't use Mono because Microsoft could have patents that conflict with the project."

Nobody has an example of such a patent, until someone finds one, you're blowing a lot of hot air.

Also, by patent I mean one that would be indisputable in court, we all know how companies love to file for patents for things that have examples of prior art.
