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.

Yes, it looks like a Gnome fork is almost inevitable. De Icaza and the Mono people will push Mono no matter what arguments (valid or not) are brought against it. They have invested too much time and energy in it to stop using it. Personally i get more and more respect for the KDE people. They seem to have the Linus Torvalds mentality. No nonsense, just quality engineering.
