Rafe on Apple's protectionism

2010-04-08 21:24:04.48615+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

I have spent the last two+ weeks wrangling C# into "Visual C++", in quotes because it bears only a passing resemblance to C++. I've been cursing Microsoft's name up, down and sideways, for the fact that they've done everything they possibly can to lock you into their development environment.

Apple's gone further. They've encoded that into their developer agreement for the iPad and iPhone. Rafe elaborates: Apple hates cross-compilers.
