Don't get me wrong, I agree. I'm frustrated by the fact that so many distros and users avoid Mono like the plague. That doesn't magically make the paranoia irrelevant, though. :/

It's their loss.

They need to look at things rationally and understand that, yes, many things that we take for granted and use in Linux have originated in Microsoft.

Take, for example, AJAX. You know, the technology that is going to finally 'rid us of the Windows desktop' is going to be 'web-based applications'. What allows these things to function is the ability to asynchronously send information to and from the web server using XML objects and Javascript.

You know.. to keep things moving and information being sent to and from your browser without having to refresh for every change. Of course the company that first introduced the async XML calls to the browsers for the purposes of doing online applications was, oh the horror, Microsoft. And those calls are now 'web standards'.

Go figure.
