Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

At least it looks official.

I would personally never develop anything with Mono or C# for that matter.

So this entire thing was just a concern troll? It is a shame that you slander the hard work of countless developers (as well as hold back potential discussion, and others who hold similar views have likely stopped progress in this area) because of your own irrational dislike of Mono and .NET .

Your argument that Microsoft, who regularly hosts the Mono team at various Microsoft events, has made two distinct promises, provides them with ahead of time documentation and testing suites, openly sponsors events that Mono hosts, and which has released large swathes of the .NET Framework as open source (new ASP.NET stacks) is somehow out to get Mono is absurd.

Microsoft, which facilitates the port of Unity middleware which uses Mono to power its C# scripting. Microsoft, who actively linked to Moonlight when users requested a Linux Silverlight download.

This, and all arguments like this, are so contrary to the truth that it borders on trolling to hold positions like yours.

I'm not saying anything like that. I'm just saying as a developer I would personally not choose to use Mono.
