Meanwhile, Novell's Miguel de Icaza, the creator of GNOME and Mono, has come out on his blog to praise this move by Nokia towards Microsoft. Some of the comments from his blog post include, "all I see is possibility and the the world of opportunities that this opens to developers... This is fascinating turn of events for C# developers as Nokia will make WP7 more relevant in the marketplace, making C# the lingua-franca of all major mobile operating systems. This astute chart explains why I am basking in joy... This is a grand time to be a mobile developer. This chart illustrates the elegant balance of native experience and code sharing available to C# developers... C# and the ECMA CLI everywhere!"
