RE[3]: Mono required

Personally, I dont like Mono because of the tie-in with Microsoft. Just because Mono is OSS doesn't mean it's exempt from any leverages MS may - or may not - have. At any rate, I want to avoid it.

You may be surprised at this little piece of news, but not all objections to software technology have to be technical. The guy expressed a legitimate concern, namely that in an unprecised future MS might be using Mono to strongarm or stop (or simply FUD about: see their stance on patent FUD) Gnome development.

So it doesn't matter how good Mono is on purely technical grounds, if it's a poisoned pill having it go down your throat nice and sweet can only make things worse for you.
