Mono Project If there is one technology in the Linux world that ruffles feathers whenever it's mentioned, it's Mono, the open source .Net clone. Since .Net comes out of Microsoft, and has some patents encircling it, it is said to be a legal nightmare. Supposedly, you can obtain a "royalty-free, reasonable and non-discriminatory" license from Microsoft regarding the patents surrounding Mono. iTWire decided to look at just how easy (or hard) it is to get such a license. Turns out it's kind of hard.

I'm not gonna argue against or for Mono.

The only thing I know is that as soon as I install my distros (Ubuntu or Fedora), the first thing I do is remove everything that is Mono or related to Mono.

Why? Because I just don't feel comfortable with it.

As simple that, I just trust my feelings...
