General Development Anyone who did not see this one coming after Microsoft's patent deal with HTC and Apple's meticulousness in avoiding Windows Mobile in its suit against HTC hasn't been paying attention. Microsoft has filed a patent complaint with the US International Trade Commission, as well as a patent lawsuit in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington against Motorola over its Android-based devices.

... who said that Microsoft have changed? Where are all those Mono zealots who tries to convince everyone that we're living in la la land and that Microsoft is open source company? De Icaza, I am looking at you!

If anyone believes anything those creeps say, he should hang himself immediately. For stupidity.

What does this have to do with Mono? I'm still using Mono applications without issue. This patent suit has nothing to do with Mono or end users in any way. I guess you just couldn't miss the opportunity to conflate two totally unrelated things in an attempt to validate your opinions.

Mono fanboys sure lambasted Java over Java-unrelated lawsuit against Dalvik.

This is very related with Mono, because Mono advocates try to paint Microsoft as friend of open source who wouldn't think about suing. And they do that because that's only way to slip .NOT in GNU/Linux. Now we have more examples that Microsft will sue whenever they have interest in suing, and that they are very happy to sue against free software.

Mono scumbags are all either Microsft shills, or plain stupid. De Icaza is trying to push Mono on everyone so his God, Microsoft can sue whoever they please. And he also said that Google should put in Andoid so that microsoft can have real chance of winning when it sues against Android.

PS:
As for your use of mono, nobody said it will burst in flames if Micosoft sue some company. Question is, do you support idea that everybody should pay money to Microsoft to do any software development? If you don't, then get rid of Mono.

I think Wikipedia put it best when they said "citation needed."

Oh, you are now saying that nobody said such thing?

Google for just about any Mono thread on just about any forum, you will see a Mono crowd praising Microsoft for their "openess" and attacking anyone who say one bad thing for Mono. FFS, just open thread about Mono on any forum, and you will get jumped by bunch of Microsoft/Novell shills or fanboys, who will call you an extremist if you don't praise mono and agree with them that is best thing since slice bread. If you go over few forums, you will find out that those are same people (same nicks) on every forum. It is not like people like Mono, just there is a devoted little group who are very skilled at astroturfing.

If that is not enough to you, what about Microsoft Alpha-shill Miguel De Icaza calling Google to switch from Java to Mono? OSNews reported on that, and if google listened to De Icaza, Microsoft would now have more things to sue over. Is that citation enough?
