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, 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.

java for example is being under same wagon

No... Java itself is definitely not in the same wagon. Ever read GPL? OpenJDK is GPL and is distributed by Oracle.
Apache Harmony is in the same wagon as Mono. In fact they are in wagon with less wheels... Harmony doesn't have even a "promise". Android is in a better position - due to the fact that Google is behind Android.
