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.

IMHO when .NET based technologies will replace the flash, javascript, etc in browsers the linux desktop will disappear with GNOME, KDE, etc without full .NET support. This dissuction about rights and patets are idle words: without web browsing the full linux desktop side with java and tcl, python and qt, Gnome and KDE will totally unuseable. Nobody will use a desktop without possibility of using home banks, web stores, or a simple news portal. At least IMHO.
