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.

Doesn't make much sense because there is nothing preventing them from making patent infringement claims on all those better choices you are promoting. Why, that's exactly what MSFT is doing with the Linux kernel: it doesn't use their technology, yet they are spreading FUD quite happily.

As your other argument on "new Linux users", it's pretty ludicrous because most users couldn't give a flying duck about software patents or even Mono/.NET as long as it works.

If you believe you're cool 'cause you don't use any Microsoft technology, that's okay. There's nothing wrong with this, but it would be much more productive for all of us if we stayed on topic (e.g. on Mono) rather than blathering on MSFT or fighting FUD with even more FUD.
