I'd heard Miguel was looking for funding to do this so I'm not surprised, but I still offer him warm congratulations and the best of luck in his new business.

This is an unexpected development and bad news for Mono on multiple levels. There are some exceptional developers working on this (not least Miguel) and I hope they all find great places to land.

As you'll recall, the Open Source Initiative asked the US DoJ and the German FCO to ensure that if Novell's patents were indeed sold to CPTN as proxy for Microsoft, EMC, Apple and Oracle, they be required to ensure the portfolio can't be used to obstruct competition from open source. Seems OSI's submission (along with those by FSF and FSFE) had a strong effect.

The OSI Board was asked by the German cartel authority for further comment on the acquisition of Novell's patent portfolio by CPTN (Microsoft, Apple, EMC, Oracle). With their permission, the OSI Board has published its response.

The OSI Board has welcomed the DoJ's further investigation of the sale of patents by CPTN, as well as endorsed the comments made by the FSF on the matter.

The FSF and OSI collaboration to challenge the CPTN acquisition of Novell's patent portfolio continues. I agree completely with this FSF statement.

As OSI and FSF requested, the US DoJ is taking a closer look at the Novell patent sale to CPTN, according to Novell's revised filing: "Also on February 2, 2011, each of CPTN and Novell received a Second Request from the DOJ regarding the sale of certain identified patents and patent applications to CPTN contemplated by the Patent Purchase Agreement. The Second Requests have the effect of extending the waiting period under the HSR Act until 30 days after both parties have substantially complied with the Second Requests, unless the waiting period is earlier terminated. Novell is in the process of gathering information to respond to this Second Request and is continuing to cooperate fully with the DOJ in connection with its review. "
