The vision behind C# is definitely not one of bringing .Net to linux -
although it may seem like that on the surface. The vision is to bring the
flexibility of the C# language to platforms other than windows.
The design is based on the Common Runtime specification, which should be
safe from any potential legislation from Microsoft thanks to it being
submitted to a standards body and thus being public domain.
