Mono Project For the most time, I've been firmly in the largest camp when it comes to the Mono debate - the 'I don't care'-camp. With patent lawsuits being hotter than Lady Gaga right now, that changed. For good reason, so it seems; while firmly in the 'ZOMG-MICROSOFT-IS-T3H-EVILL!1!!ONE!'-camp, The-Source.com investigated the five most popular Mono applications, and the conclusion is clear: all of them implement a lot of namespaces which are not covered by Microsoft's community promise thing.

Paranoid much?

What does the namespace have to do with the question of whether or not some implementation infringes on a patent; or are we saying that class names can be patented now?

Oh noes "System.Media" was referenced! We must be worried about potential lawsuits.
