Four out of five Microsofts recommend....
Reviving Windows RT? Reviving XAML? Continuing to pretend that Mono is a Microsoft product?
This is, what? The third, fourth iteration of Let's Run Windows On Something Other Than X86/X64-instruction set processors? When, do you suppose, will they abandon it this time?
XAML was a knockoff, or maybe the bastard child of, GTK and Android's XML description language for UI assets, does not and had not ever allowed us lowly programmers to "converge" Web and desktop UI design.. What, exactly, is it "converging" with these days?
Finally, Microsoft's attitude to the New Dawn Of the Multi-Platform CLR, to which Novell and the Mono team beat them by twelve years or so, seems to be "If we take credit often enough, people will begin to believe." Hey, it worked for Herman Goreing and Karl Rove, so why not?
Oh, and have I mentioned that Hell is full and the dead, now imbued with Breathless Hype, are walking the Earth? Yeah? OK then. Still, we need to be reminded now and then.
