Submission + - Richard Stallman says No to Mono. ( 4

twitter writes: "There's been a lot of fuss about mono lately. After SCO and M$ suing over FAT patents, you would think avoiding anything M$ would be a matter of common sense. RMS now steps into the fray to warn against a serious mistake.

      By the way, my primary computer is a linux-from-scratch machine with exactly one piece of non-free software installed on it: nvidia drivers. I'm not an M$ shill; fuck you, Twitter.
