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."

I'm sure Java infringes on some MS patents, that's the nature of software patents, everybody who makes software is infringing on someone's patents.

But Java has Sun behind it, sun has money and other patents. So there is a good chance microsoft wouldn't attempt to sue over such patents.

Mono is currently being well supported by Novell, who have a deal with microsoft to licence microsoft patents.
Microsoft suing the Mono project would be very bad for Novell and hardly an advantage for Microsoft as Mono is less of a threat than say, OpenOffice or Firefox.
