Mono Project If you don't like personal, blog-style reporting, you might want to skip this item. A few days ago, during a speech at Software Freedom Day in Boston, Richard Stallman has, at least in my book, crossed a line that I thought he would never cross.

It's the money train

Miguel has a good deal going with Microsoft. He's basically on their payroll via Novell. I've been out in Redmond and Bellevue lately: Mercedes, BMW's everywhere. At least 6 Bellevue towers with Microsoft's name on it. In this collapsing economy, there is no way Miguel will not stick to the MS gravy train.

If MS weren't in Redmond, this area would be a mess now.

If Miguel really cared about innovation and making something new, he'd help the Parrot VM and Perl 6 teams. Parrot just released version 1.0, and is the open-source version of the .NET CLR. It's very impressive. Perl 6 will have both static and dynamic types, and may have an alpha out next Spring.
