Someone from the Mono camp please comment on the story mentioned above:

I would really like to hear about how there is nothing to worry about and that Mono is built on a solid legal basis and that those using it will *never* have to pay a dime to M$.

If the Linux croud are stupid enough to make mono the preferred way of building desktop apps, then I hope Linux dies a slow, painful death when M$ comes knocking at their door. This will be an example to anyone in the OSS community that thinks it is ok to follow M$'s lead.

Not only that, but OSS Java is getting close...classpath is somewhere around 93% complete for JDK 1.4:

I suspect in the next year or so we'll see a fairly complete implementation of OSS Java suitable for mainstream use.
