It was you.


My comment on C#, if I had made one, would probably have been more like this: "A nice enough language, such a pity about the proprietary class libraries associated with it. It seems designed to create a whole group of developers whose only skill is to write only for the Windows desktop. That will surely end in tears one day".

No you did make one, I am not going to wade through my hundreds of posts, but it was exactly like I said, mainly because it was so idiotic.

.NET/Mono pretty much runs anywhere now, from the iPhone to Playstation VITA, so you can use C# anywhere. The unity engine is built on top of mono and many people are making cross platform games with it.

Also I am an ASP.NET developer, so it doesn't matter what the people that are using the services that I develop are using because it all standard web stuff.

Also a good programmer it doesn't matter what language they learn they are able to pick up another easily, the principles are pretty much the same across most languages.

You really are clueless.

Sure you can use C# anywhere. What you can't do is use the associated proprietary class libraries such as Winforms anywhere. So if one writes software using C# in conjunction with Winforms, then it becomes Windows-only software.

If you want to write software which is inherently not Windows-only software, you need to avoid class libraries which are Windows-only. So perhaps use GTK or Qt, and not Winforms. Users of .NET almost universally fail to do this, and hence they limit themselves to writing only for Windows, which as Gartner points out in 2014 is expected to fall to 15% of the market.

You really are clueless.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't C# code using ASP.NET only run on Windows servers?

Linux is the market leader for web servers.
