"A surprised and dismayed Richard M Stallman says Gnome
project founder Miguel de Icaza owes the community an explanation
for comments made to The Register, last week, in which de Icaza
advocated basing the project on Microsoft.NET APIs.
"I can't believe it's Gnome you're talking about but if it is, I
wouldn't like that," Stallman told an audience at the World Social
Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil last week.
Stallman only learned of de Icaza's intentions to slip the Mono
project - based on Microsoft's .NET framework - into Gnome as "the
natural technology upgrade" when asked by the audience."
