Microsoft Legitimizes Mono

Back in September of 2005 I wrote an entry on Microsoft’s confusedand self-destructive position regarding Mono, the open-sourceimplementation of a .NET runtime/C# compiler. It is great to seethat Microsoft has cleared theair, likely in reply to some recent comments by RichardStallman.

However you feel about Stallman, he should be thanked foreliciting this position declaration and finally helping tolegitimize Mono. .NET / C# developers should rejoice at thisdevelopment.
