Also, dismissing Mono as a viable implementation is equivalent to dismissing Harmony as a viable implementation.

I bet Larry wants to wrestle back some control over Java. While the free release of the JRE and the JDK was a general good for society, it was also a philanthropic gesture that made no business sense. Can anyone blame him, or even expect him to do otherwise?
