Mono Project Two weeks ago we covered the news that the Mono development team were let go kicked out by the new owners of Novel, Attachmate, apparently to move operations to Germany. Miguel de Icazza, founder of Mono, has taken this opportunity to break off on his own and has started a new company, Xamarin, to bring commercial .NET development products to iOS and Android.

AFAIK the patents mainly covered Windows.Forms, a GUI framework, so they wouldn't affect a mobile platform that uses a totally different GUI concept. Of course the details depend on how broad said patents are, which I do not know. But AFAIK they do not affect the language or the core .NET runtime.
