    Re: Microsoft .NET Native

    After two months, still no statement about native compilation for desktop applications. MS's only interest seems to be in WinRT and the Windows Store. Nothing else. So, their promise was a joke....

    Re: Microsoft .NET Native

    I'm ready to learn VB.NET syntax if it allows me to compile natively. I don't want to resurrect anything, because I have already converted 90% of my old VB6 apps (VB5, actually!) to Delphi. This...

    Re: Microsoft .NET Native

    For the moment you can only use C# syntax in .NET Native, as far as I know. (Please correct me if I'm mistaken.)

    This is taken from .NET Native's FAQ page:

    Re: Microsoft .NET Native

    So am I. I started hating Microsoft when they discontinued VB6. If they finalize this project and reintroduce native compilation making it compatible with VB syntax, I'm ready to forgive them.

    Microsoft .NET Native

    Hi,

    I would like to ask you what you think about Microsoft .NET Native.

    For the moment, VB is not supported, but MS said they will very likely include it in the future.

    Do you know if there...

    Re: Do your part for VB6!!

    I think you are pathetic. You simply don't realize that VB6 belongs to the past and, since it was not upgraded for ages, now it's too late for Microsoft to come up with a new version. I firmly...

    Personally, I don't care about VB6. I used to, but since I switched to Delphi, I have understood how limited it was. With Delphi, I can now develop applications for Windows, OSX, iOS and Android...

    What if their sales crumble? Don't you believe Apple could come to the conclusion that, if they want to continue to sell their hardware, they have to adopt different software, i.e. a different OS?
