jammag writes: It was shocking news, or so it seemed: Miguel de Icaza, the Mono creator, was switching his opinion about his life's work — he now seemed to agree with the free software partisans who oppose his Mono work and his Microsoft connections. The story flamed across the Internet and — gasp! — even got picked up on the venerable Slashdot. But Bruce Byfield reports that "De Icaza has not changed his opinions." De Icaza calls the rumors "a storm in a teacup." Tracing the misinformation trail, Byfield concludes that "FOSS community excels at communication. However, in this instance, that ability was used irresponsibly."
