Xamarin 2.0, Their New Code IDE Is Not For Linux
Phoronix: Xamarin 2.0, Their New Code IDE Is Not For Linux
Xamarin, the company founded by Nat Friedman and Miguel de Icaza for driving the development of Mono, has introduced a new Integrated Development Environment (IDE). They have also introduced a Component Store and made other changes for what they are calling Xamarin 2.0...
And this is "Linux hardware reviews, benchmarking, and gmaing"...how!?
Might as well start posting news about new releases of Garageband and Internet Explorer while you're at it, Michael!
Seriously, why is Miguel De Icaza still on the GNOME team? Besides the glaringly obvious conflict of interest and all-round horrible decisions, he's clearly on the front lines of Microsoft's old Triple-E (Embrace, Extend, Extinguish) tactic, and is no doubt receiving money to do so from MS themselves.
Who cares about this moron Icaza? Xamarin is dead to Linux. I would like to know why gnome didn't kick this moron from the planet gnome, yet? It's strange and suspicious.
Indeed. Thank god Gnome didn't follow the Mono. De Icaza and Mono had become Microsoft's Trojan horse and they do indeed receive $ from Microsoft. According to M$ “Every piece of code written to our standards is a small victory”

With Qt 5.1 there will be Qt for both Android and iOS so Mono can go and .... themselves together with all other MS stuff. Too bad cause actually C# isn't that bad a a language but ... oh well. With Qt I've found that C++ is pretty fun too.
Also, writing qml interfaces to fit on every device I target is much less painful than doing Mono's GTK# nonsense. I think this basically spells the "go fuck yourself Mono" nail in the coffin of any interest I had in it.

It's a shame because C# is a lot more enjoyable to work with than Java.
Well, C++11 is pretty good and brought a lot of high-level features that I enjoy(ed) in C# at least.

Xamarin has apparently a market segment there they can be profitable. Good for them!
Most people probably thought mono should be dead at this point after Novell ended their support.
I think its kinda funny its apparently exist a demand to do net development for iOS.
