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.

I do not doubt that Bob Muglia and Brian Goldfarb want to do the right thing, but I very much doubt that none of those guys who actually lay out the WORDING want to do it in a way that has no gotchas.

And even if we can be sloppy with other company's wording, we should scrutinize EVERYTHING that comes from Microsoft.
