RE: DotGNU more politically orientated
by Dejan Lekic on Sun 30th May 2004 18:53 UTC

I do not see politics here. It's also ridiculous when people who don't like opensource movement say that FSF/GNU people are more political oriented. If you are mature than you probably know that politics == business in so many cases. Just take a look how big companies earn monney from "opensource movement". One of them is Novell, who stays behind Mono project. I respect Mister Miguel de Icaza, people behind Ximian (now Novell), but i would much rather use "buggy" PNET, help it's developers to fix bugs, contribute, than to help some corporation earn monney.

PNET was reason why I started to learn C# - if there was no PNET (dotGNU project) I would never think about C# and .NET . I like the way they think, I apriciate their commitment, willing to fix problems for us, and most of all I apriciate how they treat JAVA and similar.

Pardon me please, but sounds (to me) little MONOpolistic... Sometimes I think Microsoft should take Ximian, not Novell, but after while I realize - there is no difference between those two companies.
