Is anyone commenting on the irony of this?  For years, Mono & Novell are
attacked by the FOSS community on the grounds that MS will sue people who
use Mono.  And now it's Apple that is slapping down legal constraints on

Love the idea of Novell/Mono going strong after mobile.  But forget the
iPhone IMHO.  I'd much prefer to see these efforts going into Android.  An
open source OS for an open source language runtime.  Makes much better sense
to me.
