So are you saying that:

a) The licensing issues have been resolved

b) The licensing issues have not been resolved

c) You don't care if at some point in the future, a large number of unsuspecting open source projects get hit with a takedown notice at the whim of Microsoft.

Sorry, but whenever these puff pieces comes up promoting Mono, these issues need to be raised.

Maybe with enough external motivation, somebody at Novell will get off their tails call up Microsoft and work out a global royalty free patent grant which is compatible with OSS licenses.

Thats all it would take to settle this. I think the fact that this hasn't happened speaks volumes about the long term viability of Mono.
