You are the type of person that just wants to complain about mono, you have no basis for not liking it, it doesnt matter to you. Hell you will never even use gnome. But you like to start the same old tired idiotic flame wars over and over.

Get back to class.

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.

Indeed. PPL fell all over Novell for the MS deal, but they love Silverlight and Mono. Well, in my book, Mono is NOT Free Software, as it's patent-ridden and it's future and development are controlled by Microsoft
