Well how about the licensing terms for all the patent-pending Microsoft IP in Mono? Have those terms been ironed out?

Dear lord, here we go again. An article about Mono on the 770 and all anyone can think about is MS patents.

Funny how it is almost always anonymous people who bring up this "problem" (one that exists for EVERY OS project, not just Mono btw).

I think OSNews should simply ban anonymous comments...I bet the comment section would be more enjoyable afterwards. Although there are some insightful anon. posts, but for the most part, anon posters are trolls.

Or, as an alternative to censorship, perhaps someone at Novell could addresses the licensing issues.

This has the advantage of also making Mono safe for use.

Your plan just sets developer's up to be used by Microsoft.

I agree.

The people running Mono need to address the licensing issues or shut the project down.

Why can't Novell do something like they did with linux?

??

Maybe because they know they *can't* defend Mono?

Mr Troll, I don't see anywhere the fact that Novel _should_ address the licence issues. Currently we have NO problems. If you are afraid enough of Microsoft -or you, and all the trolls around are afraid of changing their current languages-, then stop trolling.

Everytime -my God, everytime- an article about Mono appears you ALWAYS appear with FUD comments. Always. It looks like something personal. Really. Get a life.
