That's not true. I only know one of the licenses. I don't know the 
proprietary license.

I don't have the "GPL only virus". I agree with the X11 MIT License. I 
just have a question about the GPL'ed part of the project.

Ok, but Mono does not belong only to Novell, it belongs to a great 
community of contributors too. Then my question is: are all those 
contributors agree with the proprietary license? do they at least know 
the proprietary license?
