OSNews, Generic OSes We have a new operating system! Well, no - we have a new operating environment, since it's technically not an operating system. Pyxis 2 is an operating environment written in C# on the .NET Micro Framework. The goal of the project is to make it easier for developers to develop robust NETMF applications, while providing users with a common environment to launch applications in. It is open source (Apache 2.0).

RE: Question about .net mf

Apparently, an advantage is that some circuit boards are able to execute .net MF code directly, whereas for Mono you need a special interpreter or an underlying OS.

Why? Mono also allows for AOT

It only a matter of having a supported target platform.

Indeed, this full AOT thing seems to render .net MF useless if I've understood everything, though it's not stable yet.

EDIT : Wait... You still need the Mono runtime to run Mono code, apparently, even after having AOTd it.
