The same answer: nothing goes wrong, it is all in Order.

Microsoft has always had a knack for messing with the community of free and open source software in some form. The idea of ​​"embrace, extend, extinguish" is still very present in these circles, but also afterwards, when Microsoft had already changed a lot under Satya Nadella and OpenSource projects had increasingly become the standardized development model within the company there were minor conflicts like the Gnome Foundation, where the name GVFS (Git Virtual File System vs. Gnome Virtual File System) had caused some controversy.

Last night, Microsoft introduced the next evolutionary stage of Xamarin with the .NET Multi-Platform App UI, which will replace the previous Xamarin.Forms with the release of .NET 6 in November 2021 as a significant development as part of the further modernization of .NET becomes. The name Xamarin will also largely disappear, so that Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android will become the new components .NET for iOS and .NET for Android. In addition to iOS and Android, .NET MAUI itself will also support the development of applications for Windows and macOS from a single code base and will be available in a first preview after the release of .NET 5 in November 2020. You can find more information in the official blog post from Microsoft.

.NET MAUI vs. MAUI Linux and MauiKit

The announcement of .NET MAUI not only called the interested .NET developers, but above all parts of KDE e.V., who reacted quite sniffed to the new name. Under the umbrella of the association, MAUI Linux and Nitrux OS have been two Linux distributions close to KDE for some time now, and developers have also been working with MauiKit on a multi-platform toolkit based on Qt and the Kirigami framework for some time, which among other things should also support Windows. Accordingly, the developers responded with an official statement on their own blog and expressed their anger there.

In parallel, a corresponding pull request was opened in the official GitHub repository to indicate the name conflict. However, this was closed after a short time by David Ortinau from the Xamarin team, who now wants to clear up and mediate the matter behind the scenes between the parties.

At present we do not have a shipping schedule for . NET 6. MAUI general availability November 2021. Xamarin.Forms vs MAUI .

Even if the new name came through a legal review beforehand and was classified as OK, the matter is at least annoying and unfortunate. The fact is that MauiKit is still a relatively young project and, according to my research, only exists for a few months, but MAUI Linux has been around for a long time as a new name for one of the two Netrunner distributions at that time. The reason that MAUI is only an acronym in this context does not really count, because with MauiKit this also applies to multi-adaptable user interfaces. In any case, it would have been better if this name conflict had been avoided from the start. For Microsoft's critics within the FOSS community, this is again fresh water for the mill in doubt.
