Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

This only applies to the 1% of C# that went through ECMA. It also applies only to Microsoft. Any other company can still sue.

As Microsoft sayed itsel: Mono DOES violate there IP. Thats why Novel had to do that patent-deal with Microsoft back then which meanwhile does not exist any more.

I would be VERY careful to not depend on Mono to much. The new company behind it has not enough mass to fight IP-wars, provide protection.
