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.

RE[4]: legal Problems are deep

This is the critical thing. The most dangerous stuff is by MS and not covered by a patent grant.

You are applying double standards here.

Microsoft has not issued a patent grant for the following technologies:
Python, PHP, Linux Kernel, (Free, Open, NET) BSD Kernel, ttf, rendering (numerous patents), application skinning (numerous patents), Ruby, LUA, IDE's, Libre Office etc. etc. etc. etc.

Obviously you must argue against their usage since there is no MS Patent Grant.

What on earth makes you think that Mono is somehow different?
