Comment Re:Windows No Longer King at MS (Score 4, Interesting) 314

Microsoft's acquisition of Xamarin is more about enhancing the market share of the toolsets than "giving up" on Windows.

Compiling for Windows is ridiculously easy with Xamarin, and with the acquisition I can see them enhancing the toolset for Android and iOS to make this easier than it is now.

I believe that this is more about making SQL Server skills (programming, not administration) more compatible across platforms, which enables people to learn one technology and move platforms easier.
