Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

Why is it always about Mono?

It didn't take long for this thread to turn into a mono bashing parade. Every time Novell makes the news there is all this conjecture on what will happen with Mono and all the usual suspects come out claiming the sky is falling. Meanwhile I continue to use Mono apps and continue to believe that this is a whole lot to do about nothing. Only time will tell but in all the years it has been since Mono was introduced and people started frothing at the mouth about its connections to MS I haven't once been prevented by MS from using Mono software. "Ah but what about the future" they say. We'll see. I'm not too worried.
