Miguel De Icaza Forms New Mono Company: Xamarin 286

rubycodez writes "After being thrown out on the streets by Attachmate, the purchasers of Novell, Miguel De Icaza has formed a new company Xamarin to make .NET development tools for Android and iOS. The company will also provide commercial international Mono support. There are those who would say Mono poses a risk of drawing Microsoft patent or other IP litigation for its inclusion in some major Linux distributions, and that these recent events might be the beginning of the demise of widespread use of Mono and other .NETiness in open source software, a good thing."

You are an idiot.

Definetly, there is not much that can be done about the tsunami. It happened already and the Japanese are teaching the world a lesson regarding to displaced people management.

The point is just about the nukes. They are still there leaking and there is not known extent to the disaster at this moment. There are not possible forecast about toxic waste disposition in the next hundred years in that region.

That's all that fuss's about. Now you may go repeat mindlessly some pro nuke agenda.

The point of people opposing to nuclear power - and being labeled here and there as tree huggers or something similar - is that YOU can't control their worst effects after all. It's just risk management: There is a point when it becomes just unmanageable.

Think of the wasteland created by Chernobyl and the yet-to-be-known wasteland that's being created there in Japan right now.

I guess some particular pool construction would allow that situation. Actually the water said pool would be electrically isolated from ground, and then forcefully connected to some live wire from bomb / lights whatsoever. Then, simultaneous contact between the water and the external ground in example when someone was entering the pool would result in electrocution. If the live wire is connected to water in the pool, probably the current will find way to ground through the water and will miss the 'victim' entirely.
