But the changes still don't address the part that I want... MonoTouch! What's the problem with MonoTouch?
AMEN! for MonoTouch! (And Mono, and I am still secretly always rooting for Novell!)
While it's all still very much behind Visual Studio, the CLI (or CLS or .NET or Mono -- whatever you want to call it) is the real future of computing languages, and ruling it out is simply insane.
Mono is prime time ready now, and Apple's disallowing of it has no basis in computing reality. The advantages of the CLI are simply far too many. Managed code. Garbage collection. Choice of languages... Sigh... The beauty brings me to tears~!
