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.

I still fail to understand the fuss...
Both Mono and DotGNU developers aim to provide a re-implementation of the .NET runtime and core libraries, or so I think. Mono seems to have a little bit more ambitious scope and their developers try to implement and/or repackage Microsoft libraries; they also implement several own libraries... Am I right so far?
Or is the blessing and support from Microsoft the cause of such wrath? The "I don't trust legally binding promises" holier-than-thou attitude? The "Miguel is chasing taillights" thought that ignores the same chasing from the DotGNU project? Something different from plain zealotry?
