"This is a big move for Novell. I think that it has the potential to open up a
lot of doors for them. Now the challenges facing them will be to leverage the strengths
of Ximian while not disrupting Ximian's existing customer base and the open source
development community. If Novell works this correctly, Microsoft may have to look
at them as a serious competitor once again."
If this is judged by Mono, I don't buy it. Come
on. Mono is fine and it works somehow. But dozens of monts will pass before it will
be useful for general developer public. Mono is to .NET what Linux is to Windows XP.
In general, difficult to use, difficult to sell.
"It is obvious that the Microsoft's treachery will be it's demise in the end.
As the romans often said "quod me nutruit, me destruit", that which feeds me also
kills me. MS's greed and manipulation of the industry, the government and consumers
will end soon."
I thought people changed that 90's opinion about Microsoft. They are STILL out there.
