Mono Project "Does GNOME co-founder Miguel de Icaza's backflip over the Novell-Microsoft deal a few days ago mean that he has finally been convinced that he is on a one-way path to nowhere? Has he realised that his own project, Mono, is actually putting GNOME on a development track that can leave it open to patent claims one day? And has he realised that creating Moonlight, a clone of Microsoft's Silverlight, (with which the company hopes to trump Adobe's Flash) is not going to advance the cause of free software one iota?"

Thom,

Sam Varguese is essentially a tabloid author. He always has, and has never shown any sign of intellect beyond what would be expected by the rage-o-sphere.

In that article he selectively quotes my postings to usenet ignoring the most extensive and more nuanced response. Sam is a partisan hack, loves KDE, hates Gnome and hates Mono.

Jihadists like Sam contribute very little to the advancement of free software and only poison the discourse.

Miguel.

Sir:

There is a rule about the amount of energy you should waste in worrying about the criticisms of random people on the Internet.
