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?"

Reread my comment. You obviously care about the TECHNOLOGY LICENSING ISSUE, not the politics. Politics is about appearances ... you know, the meaningless bullshit attendant to human existence ... And, like I said, only the zealots care about the politics. The LICENSING, on the other hand, is a legitimate issue.

P.S. Blanket discounting of opposing opinions is childish and intellectually disingenuous.


I didn't. You simply didn't understand the nuance of my comment.
