Check your history again, friend. C# may be patent free, but it WAS created by Microsoft initially, and they tied it to .net in an almost irreversible way. Mono is still an IP landmine, despite .net's so called open-ness. How many companies/projects have Microsoft sued for infringmement on their so-called "open" standards? Whenever Microsoft makes a "standard" it is with the express goal of reeling people into their platform.
Mono is still tainted. C# is still... tainted. ECMA is already in Microsoft's poicket, unless you've overlooked the nightmare that was the OOXML standardization.
