(Novell Releases Mono 1.2 With Enhanced Support for .NET on Linux)

EASTERBROOK to :-) "People willingly pay for 
quality software even when they can get free (but imperfect) 
substitutes. Open Office is a free, open-source suite of word 
processor, spreadsheet and presentation software, but the proprietary 
Microsoft Office has many more users. Gimp is a free, open-source 
image editor, but the proprietary Adobe Photoshop enjoys the lion’s 
share of the market.


The GPL and open-source software have nothing to fear from the 
antitrust laws."

Oracle et al (Microsoft will probably join soon) will now supply
ancillary Linux et all (including Mono) support services with a 
vengeance. Goodbye Red Hat, Novell and IBM in thier "services" 
business model.

What a perfect work, smarty EASTERBROOK.
