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 all are getting it in the wrong way, think in MONO as the Open Source .NET, maybe many of you haven't understand that .NET plus XAML combined with Longhorn could just finish with any kind of Linux efforts to have a better market share, MONO is the Linux community answer to MS .NET to keep Linux reliable to new technologies.

What else can the Linux community do?, see how Microsoft becomes a stronger monopoly for the next 10 years?, this is not about GNOME or KDE, KDE is invited yo use MONO, its about to keep Linux as a choice for enterprices.
