So we know that MS has a broad patent application for .NET which (if granted) mono probably infringes.

But you say we should ignore the risk because the patent "probably won't be valid".

Sorry no thanks.

I have a simple solution for the Mono fans, why doesn't Novell get MS to clarify the licensing requirements for the .NET IP? This will settle the issue once and for all.
