Mono Project Two weeks ago we covered the news that the Mono development team were let go kicked out by the new owners of Novel, Attachmate, apparently to move operations to Germany. Miguel de Icazza, founder of Mono, has taken this opportunity to break off on his own and has started a new company, Xamarin, to bring commercial .NET development products to iOS and Android.

You know that your linked article is just counting namespaces and not classes or use of patents.

For example a point struct is best kept in System.Drawing and therefore System.Drawing is included even if no "Patent Promise" exists for this namespace.

So how is it so "Dangerous" to use a point struct?

Doesn't Java have a Point class? Is that "Dangerous" to use as well? Or is it only "Dangerous" if used from C#?

Is short, your spin is disingenuous at best.
