Windows Very light on details, but this is interesting nonetheless - very interesting, and potentially one of the biggest things to have hit the operating systems business this decade. Bloomberg is reporting that Microsoft plans to announce Windows for ARM processors at CES in January 2011.

Because I only replied to a single sentence. A sentence which states a fallacy born of familiarity and comfort.


I disagree, and I've explained why, which you've neglected to address.

No, you persist in going on about specificities and Dalvik VS WP7, when I'm talking of the generalities of development platforms.

I punched a gigantic hole in one of your arguments, so you decided to pretend I was talking about something else.

Charyou-tree. Come, reap.

No, I won't explain my abstruse references. You're in front of a computer, you have a world of information to access.

No, the premise of the counterargument I made is simple. Familiarity only helps productivity to an extent, after that limit is reached, you run into the inherent problems in the platform itself.

My argument was that using Silverlight, the threshold for the limitation is much higher, and as a result I am more productive with Silverlight compared to iOS, Android, and webOS (which I also am very familiar with).

Also, Dalvik is the name of the VM for Google's Java implementation .. it's not the name of the Android platform, and in fact, my gripes are not even with the language so much as they are with the libraries.
