Well, what else were they going to do? Allow an open source, cross platform SDK independent of Microsoft to gain traction? With a Windows-based SDK using Visual Studio, young programmers will be happily trapped on a Windows stack for decades! It’ll be this decade’s Access.


Don't you mean it'll be this decade's Xcode?
