Mono Project We've had a lot of debates recently on the merits - or dangers - of Mono. We've had troubles with how Microsoft views Mono and whether or not everyone is safe using it, but we also had a public back-and-forth among Debian maintainers. During all this, Richard Stallman remained pretty mum on the issue, today he broke the silence on the FSF website.

I do actually have a question for you. What about QT? here is a statement from Nokia to think about:

“All of Europe’s innovators, including individual inventors, small and medium size enterprises (SMEs), as well as large multinational companies, require patents to protect their inventions, provide incentives to undertake research and development in Europe, and to promote licensing and technology transfer.”


So who do you think Nokia is going to sue? Themselves? The *users* of the toolkit they themselves are shipping?

It would be the same thing as Microsoft suing MFC/.NET users for using a patented technology.
