Phoronix: Mono's C# Compiler Now 4.0 Feature Complete
For those interested in programming in C# on Linux or have interest in Mono for using Microsoft's .NET, you may be pleased to know that Mono's C# compiler is now C# 4.0 feature complete. Covariance and contravariance, optional parameters, dynamic binding, and other features of the C# 4.0 programming language have now been implemented within Mono...
M$ is giving us a little liberty with mono, but just enough so that it can bite us in the ass with patents later down the road should it desire. Theoretically as long as you dont use windows forms, asp.net or the likes, you should be fine.
Mono is free software. How free oftware can be controlled by MS I don't know. Influence maybe, but control?
I was talking in relation to BlackStar comment which was talking in relation to snogglethorpe comment which was talking in relation to grantek comment which was referring to C# (the language) not Mono (the open source project).
So in that context I maintain my statement: C# is controlled by MS.
