  • I would be surprised that any open source coders would go near ROTOR - it is known that even talking about it and then coding open source is a breach of its shared source licensing

    seriously though, I am very cynical about what rotor can offer to people who aren't activestate - mono provides 95% of rotor but without the cancerous / parasitic licensing.

    Shared source is typical microsoft 'heads we win, tails you lose' marketechture and best avoided.

    • I hate licensing. mono and portable.net are reinventing the wheel for no good reason, apart from licensing.

      Actually, the license for rotor [microsoft.com] isn't too bad. It even contains the phrase "You may use any information in intangible form that you remember after accessing the Software".

      God I hate licenses.

      • I think there is more to mono than licensing, end even if it were just about licensing it brings some kind of diverity if not healthy competition.

        I am glad KDE and GNOME both exist because I prefer the approach the gnome people have taken and they have fed back into each other.

        At a later point maybe mono and rotor can share ideas that makes the CLI better implemented or more powerful. Of course this is limited by microsoft rather than ximian - again this boils down to licensing - there would not be a need for mono if microsoft had done as Sun have and released a totally public domain reference model.
