Then I guess we shouldn't have AJAX either, since Microsoft developed one of
the core technologies behind AJAX.

Their MO may be Embrace, Extend, Extinguish, but they are not in a landscape
where they can do that without severe backlash. We get angry a lot over
Linux FUD, but that doesn't mean you are given the right to spread FUD
against Microsoft too.

Mono is based on an open standard, a standard that is being updated
periodically too. The parts that aren't part of the standard can easily be
placed in separate packages and not installed, if you are really concerned
about it.
