Quick Mention: Novell’s Mono Evolves and Approaches Evolution

Posted in Free/Libre Software, GNOME, Mono, Novell at 6:16 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

It was a few months ago that Miguel de Icaza spoke abut the possibility of Mono extensions for Evolution. Consider the following an important update from him:

“Update: Jeff wrote an add-in for MonoDevelop to do Evolution plugins in C#.”

It seems like the gradual evolution of GNOME. The issue here is that it’s a route to dependency where a crucial application (already used by many) is involved. People become ‘hooked’ on plugins.

See this hours-old post for more information about our concern. Evolution is Free software. Let’s not turn into to Fee software.

A bad penguin -- Novell

    Microsoft has granted RAND+Royalty Free licenses to any patents they might own that are required to implement the ECMA 334/335 standards. So at least our core VM, classes and compilers are safe from any litigation from *Microsoft*.

    When did they say that ?

    They said it in here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/interop/principles/osspatentpledge.mspx

    Where they also redefine OpenSource to be:
    0. non commercial
    1. freely redistributed
    2. freely modified
    3. source code published

    Might begin with ‘Se’, ends in ‘Out’ and has ‘ll-’ in the middle, but I don’t promise this is what I’m thinking about…
