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?

Agreed.
Mono should get the IP issue clarified or GET OFF THE LINUX PLATFORM.
If you don't understand what FREE means then you need to build your own OS and take your RISK with you.

Additionally, Mono should label it's site:
NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE.

You need to honestly step up to the plate and specify the RISKS involved with the use of Mono.

By the way, great name.
I get it: Mono: the linux infection.

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.

Well, then I certainly won't use the technology and I will warn as many people as possible to the risk involved.

How can you call this FUD? I cited the actual patent application in my post!!! You just responded with an off-topic flame.
