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.

I'm not really disagreeing with your points but I do find it funny that everytime Nat says something everyone seems to think he's off his can. Like we are somehow more aware of the going ons at Novell.

The same thing happened about his title on Slashdot, everyone just thought he was playing the mighty Nat card and it turned out to be his title.

I know for a fact, because of a relative, that he heads the desktop division that has almost all say of what is going into their desktop. Why are you questioning him?
