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?"

Microsoft is a convicted monopolist, which makes it a criminal organization, equivalent to a mafia engaged in organized crime.

Not to get off subject here but if you actually read about the case you'll find that MS was tried in a civil court of law.

Using the logic that any individual or company convicted in any court (civil or criminal) puts them on equal footing with organized crime is ridiculous at best.
