A: He rewrites Mono apps in c++
How strange that so many Gnome/Novell developers claimed that Mono was
essential because of software like Tomboy, which is the primary reason
so many distros have now become infected with Microsoft's Intellectual
Monopoly Poisonware, and yet, as it turns out, rewriting Tomboy in c++
was "actually not that hard".
It's even stranger that this developer should choose to do this just a
couple of days after Microsoft settle a "deal" with TomTom over patent
"infringement" of their Intellectual Monopoly.
It's time certain pro-MONOpolists faced the fact that Mono only exists
to serve Microsoft. Take away Novell employees' contractual obligation
to follow the company's agenda, and suddenly Mono becomes redundant.
In fact it's far worse than redundant, it's dangerous. The TomTom case
proved that conclusively.
