    Well that's interesting, I had thought they were going to go with LLVM for their cross platform .NET Native implementation, but that works too. It's going to be very interesting to watch this develop

      another ROCK news about LLVM. Good to see they choose LLVM to compile .NET things.

            Shocking

            At first I thought this was a late April fools.

              Good April joke however a little late.

              Seems this will make MONO obsolete soon? When Ubuntu ships MS C# I might use it.

                  Because Ballmer is gone and Nadella actually listens to Anders Heijlsberg and Scott Guthrie. Those two are pretty cool guys who want what's best for developers and the technologies they're creating.

                    Sounds good. One day we might finally get an open-source C++/clr compiler though. C# can piss off but .NET is pretty cool for tedious GUI tasks.
