ANY pattern, especially with persistent repetition, can be easy to pinpoint. Most <a href="http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Mono" title="Mono">Mono</a> and <a href="http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Moonlight" title="Moonlight">Moonlight</a> promoters do not like GNU/Linux. Instead, they appreciate or even obsess about Microsoft software. Mono projects provide these boosters with the perfect opportunity to infect other, unwitting platforms with their obsession. For the past three years we have shown that it is Microsoft journalists who care the most about Mono and Moonlight releases and not Linux-focused reporters. It speaks volumes about the PR that has been invested to keep this patent-trap alive. It seems to be effective, because Mono has now spread to Android, as Microsoft MVP Miguel de Icaza gleefully announces<a href="http://twitter.com/migueldeicaza/status/55674362023514112"></a>:

Today we released Mono for Android 1.0 http://bit.ly/mono-android-1 and MonoTouch 4.0 http://bit.ly/monotouch-4 Enjoy!

Novell has renewed its efforts in the mobile arena by today announcing the availability of Mono for Android, a set of tools for developing .NET applications for the Android platform using Microsoft Visual Studio. Following the Mono Project's core tenet of making Microsoft .NET applications capable of running cross-platform, Novell says that it is now enabling Visual Studio, .NET, and C# developers to utilize a common code base to create applications for the industry's most widely-used mobile devices, including Android-based phones and tablets, Apple iPad, Apple iPod Touch, and Apple iPhone.

Novell's Banshee, a [cref 15000 patent trap] with unique problems.
