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.

You are wrong.

Hohum,

You are wrong. Mono was self-hosting way before Rotor 1.0 was released. Rotor was released in March 2002. By that time we not only had the class libraries to the point of self-hosting, and the compiler in self hosting mode, but we had ASP.NET with XSP and ADO.NET ;-)

Miguel.
