BOGOSITY = 100%. This is crap - stop spouting this nonsense - many
companies are developing code using Mono from Unity [gaming] to Quantifi
[financial] to Medsphere [medical]. And many of the leading Open Source
projects are in Mono: Monodevelop, F-Spot, Banshee, Tomboy, etc... The
Mono ecosystem is thriving, and will do so with or without Beagle.

Garbage. This is a claim of pure unadulterated ignorance. The "patent
deal" has nothing whatsoever at-all to do with Mono. This has been
explained dozens of times.
An in general:
That is the answer to FUD; I won't dignify any responses along those
line - and spare polluting the list archives with more such foolishness.
