Yeah, you can read my blog if you're interested, I've worked on a number
of crazy platforms and I mainly work on the Graphics ports. We only use
the Class library code of course. I guess you can't get everything for
free, isn't it? :)

If you'll be at FOSDEM, we can discuss it with the other guys, I think
some flame is fun, but we may even get some constructive point between a
beer and the other.

The fact is this: I would like to help out with the TCK, let's say,
employing a common strategy, pushing the right people in the right
direction and so on, but when the conversation, right at the beginning,
starts with FUD about licenses, well... I get very unmotivated, honest.
