    Using Mono to make it easier to port applications developed for Windows to Linux is something that even RMS doesn't particularly object to. The reason why it was controversial was because the Mono developers were trying to push it as a platform to develop new Linux desktop applications, which exposed the Linux desktop to legal risk from Microsoft and their patent portfolio and meant that the applications actually worked better under Windows than Linux.
