Mono Project The tomato war between Red Hat, Novell and the developer Gnome community about Mono and its legal safety continued today. Novell's Nat Friedman and Miguel de Icaza replied to yesterday's editorial by Red Hat's Seth Nickell. Later, Red Hat's Havoc Pennington replied to Nat and Gnome's Andrew Sobala also threw a few (metallic) cents too. For future episodes, bookmark PlanetGnome (unverified rumors circulating on IRC claim that eggs might be used next if there is no sign of their lawyers meeting with Microsoft to try to give an end to the saga). In any case, you don't want to miss this.

If this is all true (the letter) then it certainly is the last bit of relief I needed. After all, I was never interested in the non-EMCA stuff and I'll gamble and say most linux fans aren't. Hopefully this will convince Redhat to adopt the non-emca version.

On another note it's too bad that the gnome community has become chearleaders for their companies. I would like to see gnome first but I guess this is bound to happen. What's important is that they can overcome their differences.
