a talk by Gartner Research Vice President Mark Driver
at the Gartner Application Development Summit.
"He added a word of caution about Mono, however. Microsoft is happy to see Mono and even Java tools today because they protect the company from further charges of monopoly. Driver said it could crush Mono tomorrow with intellectual property warfare if they wanted to do so, but that Microsoft prefers them let them live for now. The killing blow will come from WinFX and the new Vista APIs. He is very pessimistic about Mono being able to maintain its current high degree of compatibility.
