Hilarious. We can't also let Knuth poison GNOME with his algorithms
and datatypes. I guess it's the same for Ritchie or Kernighan with

It's not the proper place to ask for a free training in software engineering.

Call me a retard then. Linux is a kernel. GNOME is not Linux. dotNet
is a common runtime and compiler for a set of languages. Mono is a
reimplementation of dotNet. C# is not more MS than Ruby or Python is.
They all run on both Mono and dotNet. You sir fail to understand both
technology and patents.
