Mono Project In a recent interview with the online edition of the Austrian daily Newspaper Der Standard, Mono project-lead Miguel de Icaza pleads for a cooperation between Mono and Microsoft's .Net: "I think that the deal should include a technical Mono/.NET collaboration, and even go as far as Microsoft recommending Mono for all of their developers looking at migration."

Do you really see MS lay down and give up? Or, much more likely IMO, start a patent and/or IP infringement lawsuit?

Of course they won't give up, but as you said such a situation is highly unlikely, there is IMHO no point in speculating what they would do then.

In order not to get into this situation, they will keep on extending .Net in a way that is hard (or even impossible) for others to implement.
This is something they have huge expertise in.
