Mono Project Two weeks ago we covered the news that the Mono development team were let go kicked out by the new owners of Novel, Attachmate, apparently to move operations to Germany. Miguel de Icazza, founder of Mono, has taken this opportunity to break off on his own and has started a new company, Xamarin, to bring commercial .NET development products to iOS and Android.

If I use .NET for Android to write the Android version, I can share almost all the non-GUI code with the version I already wrote for iOS (including the database and XML processing code). Guess what, I will be able to use it again if I make a Windows Phone 7 version. The more sophisticated my app is, the bigger advantage this becomes. Exactly what other dev tool allows me to do that?


Well, we will be able to do more than that: write GUI code usin .NET too. If there will be a strong Silverlight implementation. Just imagine that: write once, no code chages, no hack, no hassle. ;) I do hope for a good Silverlight implementation on iOS and Android.
