Mono Project The Mono project has released Mono 2.0. As most of you will know, Mono is an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other operating systems. The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0. The release notes detail all the changes and new features.

For this to happen they'd have to win a suit against the manufacturer or reseller first and then the manufacturer would have to recall the product. Individual consumers are not sued.


Correct.

But the individual users are still without their computing resources, because those resources are recalled.

However it won't happen. If Microsoft try it on to get Linux systems recalled, then Linux will retaliate to get all Windows systems recalled.

Chaos ensues. Economic meltdown. Therefore it won't happen.

So, no need to be afraid. No need to not use Mono.

Which brings me back to my original point.

The only reason you're spreading fear around Mono is because you hate Microsoft, and probably Novell too because they made a deal with Microsoft. That's pretty obvious by now. Which is a valid reason, don't get me wrong, but next time, don't try to hide your true intentions. Some of us are smart enough to see through them.

It would save us having to type in all these useless comments every time.

I'm not the one spreading FUD.

Ballmer is the one who talks about their being an "undisclosed liability" to Microsoft in using Linux.

There is your FUD, right there.

OK Mr Ballmer, I won't use Mono. Happy now?

I win, you win, we all win, and Mono dies through lack of interest, and Ballmer needs to throw a few chairs and then come up with yet another bright idea.

Since you agree it won't happen, why do you continue to spread FUD?

The question,, more to the point, is ... why does Ballmer continue to spread FUD?

You realize that that is logistically pretty much impossible for any Linux distribution. So at worst the consumer is stuck with what he/she have until the distribution makes a new version without Mono.
So you're just making lot of ado about nothing.
