After a rather peaceful period it seems the anti-Mono patent-paranoia machine is ramping up again; I've seen numerous posts and references to oh-so-evil Mono in the last week. For the intelligent life forms out there I present two BLOG posts which knock these kind of trolls out of the water (assuming they can be bothered to read):
* Here we go again – why Mono doesn’t suck
* How To Defend Against Software Patent FUD
And this one is good too although more general than the other two:
* Lots of GNOME/Mono FUD Lately
But I do wonder if the old advice "Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference" is the most appropriate response to these guys. Just keep on coding and let them rant; code and working solution speak for themselves.
BTW, on a personal note, the Sylvann Inn is a very nice and affordable place.
