"For the curious, Microsoft has posted the new "covenant not to
sue" covering Moonlight 3 and 4. It is still quite narrow.
"Microsoft, on behalf of itself and its Subsidiaries, hereby
covenants not to sue End Users for infringement under Necessary
Claims of Microsoft and its Subsidiaries on account of such End
Users' use of Moonlight Implementations to the extent originally
provided by Novell during the Term and, if applicable, the
Extension or Post-Extension Period, but only to the extent such
Moonlight Implementations are used as Conforming Runtimes."
Microsoft can also discontinue it at any time."
