Linq and DLinq

I often wonder when I'm writing VB.NET code where the big time savings is coming from. They've added some nice declarative features to the ASP.NET framework, and the class library is pretty wide, but most frameworks can say the same. Linq seems to go beyond that and make the language itself more expressive, reminding me of what I like about perl's map and grep, and set-oriented SQL operations. I suspect I'm going to be using it a lot for that reason.

From Dare Obasanjo (talking about XLinq):

"Erik Meijer and I used to spend a lot of time talking about XML integration into popular programming languages back when I was on the XML team. In fact, all the patent cubes on my desk are related to work we did together in this area"

I wonder if the above means that Linq will not be included in the free Mono stack?
