“NoMo (patent) security vulnerabilities!”
Koushik Dutta has posted two great updates on his blog about Mono running on the Android powered G1 phone. The code necessary to build Mono on Android is available at the androidmono page.
This is nothing to be jubilant about because Microsoft just loves it for a reason. Microsoft wants to spread its de facto standards and software patents everywhere in the industry. Novell keeps helping and steering towards the goal by producing and spreading damaging copycats. Novell too just loves it for a reason, as the quote below elucidates. █
“There is a substantive effort in open source to bring such an implementation of .Net to market, known as Mono and being driven by Novell, and one of the attributes of the agreement we made with Novell is that the intellectual property associated with that is available to Novell customers.”
