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?"

Why ride a horse you can't steer.

I find it disturbing that that asking reasonable questions, or expressing an opinion equals flamebait.

I think that Mono is bad for Gnome too.
There are so many other things to work on.
