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?"
