Miguel de Icaza works for Novell.


Novell is getting millions from Microsoft, partly in support for Moonlight. Miguel's salary is funded by Microsoft, or do you think Novell's letting him do all this work for nothing?

If people want to use C# so badly, port it to run on top of the Parrot VM, and all of it's code will be interoperable with Perl 6, and the other Parrot languages that will come out. Wouldn't that solve everything?

How would that solve anything? If C# is patent encumbered when implemented on Mono, it's going to be patent encumbered when implemented on Parrot (or Vala).
