Mono Project We've already seen some heavy discussion on Mono and C# here on OSNews the past few weeks, as it became clear the patent situation regarding the ECMA parts of Mono was anything but faith inspiring. This issue seems to be resolved now: Microsoft has made a legally binding promise not to sue anyone who uses or distributes implementations of said ECMA standards. Following this news, Mono will be split in two; the ECMA standard parts, and the rest.

Actually, it's not useless at all. It is useless for .net, but not everybody cares about .net itself and some just want to use the language with other components. C# is actually quite a nice language imho, and it's nice to have this part, at least, finally cleared up.
It should be interesting to see what happens with regard to the .net portions of mono. Somehow, I have this sneaking suspician they won't be so kind to Mono when it comes to .net.
