Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

This only applies to the 1% of C# that went through ECMA. It also applies only to Microsoft. Any other company can still sue.

Do you have any source for "1% of C#" going through ECMA? This is fucking ridiculous.

Stop spreading FUD.

As Microsoft sayed itsel: Mono DOES violate there IP. Thats why Novel had to do that patent-deal with Microsoft back then which meanwhile does not exist any more.

The Novel deal had nothing to do with Mono. You do not know what you're talking about. Stop.

I would be VERY careful to not depend on Mono to much. The new company behind it has not enough mass to fight IP-wars, provide protection.

Uhm, Mono is protected by the OIN. Xamarin wouldn't have to lift a finger. Again, you don't know what you're talking about. Stop.
