Depends on how you read them and whether you agree with him or not.
And for most cases I don't.
Saying mono is evil while having DotGNU seems odd to me
Did you even read the article? I don't see where FSF cliams mono is
evil. Their position is far more nuanced than that. What FSF is
suggesting is to treat Mono purely as a (legacy) compatibility layer and
not use it for new applications.
"This is not to say that implementing C# is a bad thing. Free C#
implementations permit users to run their C# programs on free platforms,
which is good. (The GNU Project has an implementation of C# also, called
.) Ideally we want to provide free implementations for all
languages that programmers have used.
The problem is not in the C# implementations, but rather in Tomboy and
other applications written in C#. If we lose the use of C#, we will lose
them too. That doesn't make them unethical, but it means that writing
them and using them is taking a gratuitous risk."
