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.

We're back to square one until Microsoft makes a promise for the whole .NET stack and not just the ECMA specifications.

It's not a problem for Linux software. Linux applications don't use WinForms or any other non-standardized code from Microsoft.
