Submission + - The Uncertain Future of Mono (infoworld.com)

snydeq writes: "Fatal Exception's Neil McAllister sees an uncertain future for Mono in the wake of recent Attachmate Mono layoffs, one that may hinge ironically on help from Microsoft itself. 'To lose all of the potential of these tools now would be a terrible shame. But it seems unlikely that Mono will be able to keep up with the pace of .Net without some sort of commercial backing,' McAllister writes. 'The most likely candidate might be the least-expected one. Microsoft has been working to revise its stance on open source for the last few years, softening its rhetoric and even sponsoring open source projects through the Outercurve Foundation (née CodePlex). Maybe it's high time Microsoft put its money where its mealy mouth is.'"
