Submission + - Is it safe to program .NET for Linux?

iplayfast writes: "I program for a number of operating systems and usually end up using C++. However as C++ is getting more and more knarly (IMHO) I'm thinking of going to C# which is similar to C++ without the knarlyness.

My worry is that given Microsoft's tendency to sue or back law suits against anything Linuxy If I develop an app for Linux using .NET will I have to re-write it 10 years down the road due to legal issues. Is it safe?"

Robotic Prostheses For Human Faces 111

holy_calamity writes "New Scientist reports on a patent application that suggests implanting polymer muscles beneath the skin of people suffering paralysis of the face to give them control of their features. The technique has already been used successfully to reanimate the eyelids of human cadavers. Movement could be returned to other facial features and even paralyzed limbs in the same way, the surgeons at University of California Davis say. The full patent application is also available on the WIPO site."
