| because they don't want to support it, or because they don't support it yet.

| I read the agreement between Xandros and Microsoft, and one of the excluded

| Interestingly, the Novell deal seems to be different, Mono is not excluded
| from the Novell deal. So Microsoft seems to be promising not to sue Novell
| over Mono, but keeps the option open for Xandros. Weird but true. *
