    Phoronix: Open-Source .NET Fans Push Its New Foundation

    This year at Microsoft's Build Developer Conference a .NET Foundation was announced to steward the "open-source technologies for .NET" While many open-source fans aren't too enthusiastic about .NET in any capacity, the .NET Foundation is beginning to move forward...

      I'm trying to find a purpose to your post other than starting a flamewar and I cannot see any.

      No substance or arguments (as this debate could ever be constructive anyway), just blind pushing of your own preferences.

        Really? How about Go + QML?

          I'll have to agree with ClosureSpin on this one. There is nothing that is
          inherently wrong/right with .NET and/or C#. It certainly has its merits,
          and the documentation is unprecedented, not to mention developer cost.
          Opensource does not have to use assembler to be opensource

            Jerkass Has a Point though. WinForms on Linux is still a mess.

              Then use GTK# or Xwt or in the near future QtSharp. Given how easy C# makes separating your core from your UIs, if a project is open source it's kind of silly to whine about GUI toolkits. I personally look forward to mixing C# and Qt/QML though.

                At least the DotNetFoundation forums are running Discourse. Crufty old PHP-based forums with 90's UX (like this one) give me hives.

                  I love C# and .NET, it is awesome!

                  I also code in Java, Python, PHP, etc. But C# is my favorite language.

                    Agreed, but as someone said, there is GTK# and others. Also, GUI is a very small part
                    of .NET framework, there is a plethora of great, useable libraries.

                    Finally, somehow I think him mentioning .NET and Java together and comparing them
                    to Qt has something to do with their VM "heritage", rather than GUI. But I might be wrong.
