In Topic: .NET Native

07 April 2014 - 07:40 PM

Yes but as I stated and as it is mentioned in the FAQ:

Will Server/Desktop apps benefit from .NET Native and/or the Compiler in the Cloud?
Desktop apps are a very important part of our strategy. Initially, we are focusing on Windows Store apps with .NET Native. In the longer term we will continue to improve native compilation for all .NET applications.

It is a start to something more promising and desktop will likely get support. Whether that is in the same format that is yet to be determined

You're missing my point: "desktop" likely means "Windows", with no support for any other OS, so it is only effective on one platform (two, if you count Windows Store apps). For me, hearing this news is like hearing that they've developed new racing slicks that have a withstand a greater amount of G-force while allowing maximal ground content. That's awesome, but for people who need to drive their vehicle on long commutes through various different climates, such as colder, snow-covered regions, this news isn't as exciting.

Mono already supports an AOT compiler for many platforms, and has done for a while now, so you're already covered on that front.

.NET Native isn't the only awesome C# news to come out this week.


- The entire Roslyn compiler stack is open source: http://roslyn.codeplex.com/


- You can see all the raw design discussions the compiler team has around new language features, and play with the previews of some of them: https://roslyn.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=CSharp%20Language%20Design%20Notes&referringTitle=Documentation


- Microsoft has formed an organization that works with other companies and communities to open source huge parts of the .NET framework: http://www.dotnetfoundation.org/


- The brand new JITer (codenamed RyuJIT) has hit CTP3 and now supports SIMD! http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clrcodegeneration/archive/2014/04/03/ryujit-ctp3-how-to-use-simd.aspx


- All of the .NET Framework source code (core libraries, WPF, you name it) has been opened up for use as a reference: http://referencesource.microsoft.com/
