Here's a look at Mono by Jeremy Allison
on the Tux Deluxe site. "But my basic issue with the Microsoft Community Promise is that Miguel doesn't have to depend on it like everyone else does. Miguel's employer, Novell, has a patent agreement with Microsoft that exempts Mono users from Microsoft patent aggression, so long as you get Mono from Novell. Miguel takes pains to point this out. This is not a level playing field, or software freedom for all. This is a preferred supplier trying to pretend there is no problem. Sure there isn't a problem, for them. If it isn't good enough for Miguel, why is it good enough for other developers?
