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.
