Mono Project We've already seen some heavy discussion on Mono and C# here on OSNews the past few weeks, as it became clear the patent situation regarding the ECMA parts of Mono was anything but faith inspiring. This issue seems to be resolved now: Microsoft has made a legally binding promise not to sue anyone who uses or distributes implementations of said ECMA standards. Following this news, Mono will be split in two; the ECMA standard parts, and the rest.

So GNOME will have the covered parts of Mono installed by default ... that is almost a guaranteed outcome now.

This will quite possibly cause some defections from GNOME.


I completely agree, and I think it is a good thing. The gnome community will come out of this much stronger than it was before.
