Apple John Gruber has found out that cross-compilers are no longer allowed in iPhone OS 4.0. "My reading of this new language is that cross-compilers, such as the Flash-to-iPhone compiler in Adobe's upcoming Flash Professional CS5 release, are prohibited. This also bans apps compiled using MonoTouch - a tool that compiles C# and .NET apps to the iPhone. It's unclear what this means for tools like Titanium and PhoneGap, which let developers write JavaScript code that runs in WebKit inside a native iPhone app wrapper. They might be OK."

I am not waiting for Apple to be nice though. I am waiting for them to get a letter from EU competition commissioner or US anti-trust agency.

Based on what? For having only 25% of US smartphone market or 15% of worldwide market? Microsoft got smacked for having over 90% of market, no mere 25%.
And even though they are the dominant player in the PMP market, iPod Touch is not the major product in that category.
