	That's a great read.   I've basically been going on your first point, about 
how just about anything is at patent risk these days.  For example, Sun is 
having problems with patents and java right now.  Kodak has apparently filed 
a lawsuit in 2002.

	We have a pretty nice 2D map viewer written in java, and in my spare time I'm 
working to reimplement in mono for a number of reasons.   I am leaning 
towards using gtk# over WindowsForms.   It's a lot of fun so far.

	Oh, I think it's "Fog of war".
