I mean here it is 2011 and they still expect people to use a terminal

...and as we all know, it's much easier to follow a tutorial with 30 steps including editing registry keys and running cryptic commands in the "Start -> Run..." window than it is to simply copy & paste a one-liner and hit enter in a terminal.

Actually this is kind of exciting for if it seriously takes off, that means one can do some gaming in a linux platform.

I've been playing games using only GNU/Linux for many years and the main problem was lack of time to try them all, especially since the Humble Indie Bundle. Let alone all those games for Android. I highly doubt that I somehow travelled in time and started using NaCl even before Chromium was released.

I agree it can result in more cross-platform games, though.


+ - Mono developers form new company->

The copyrights to the iPhone and Android ports of Mono remain at Attachmate, but that didn't discourage Xamarin from planning to redevelop those components as proprietary software again. Miguel writes:

These are some of the things that we will be doing at Xamarin:

  • Build a new commercial .NET offering for iOS
  • Build a new commercial .NET offering for Android
  • Continue to contribute, maintain and develop the open source Mono and Moonlight components.
  • Explore the Moonlight opportunities in the mobile space and the Mac appstore.
