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.

Mono shouldn't be part of Gnome Core

I think Mono shouldn't be part of the Gnome Core. If Novell wants to include Mono apps to their distribution, hey great, it is their distribution after all. What I'm beginning to resent is the way Novell seems to be dividing the Gnome community on this issue. It seems anytime someone questions the potential legal problems with Mono, the Novell guys seem to immediately cast these arguments as only corporate (Redhat) politics. I hate to tell them (Novell), but a lot of users out here in the wild feel the same way regarding these potential legal issues.
