Uno should be officially backed. Xamarin.Forms doesn't solve the problem a single look across devices but does solve mark up type safety. HTML has loads of issues and only solves the single look issue but is horrid in all other areas. Uno solves both issues and only lacks a cross platform editor which is a small price to pay.
Point is you don't like Silverlight... no one cares, don't use it as thats your prerogative.... but there is nothing wrong with making something like it Open Source which is the point here.
There is also nothing wrong with making silverlight web apps and there is nothing wrong with taking it further to desktops(Win/Mac/Lin) and mobile phones(WP8,iOS,Android).
I use silverlight for client tool apps that I need the use of C# for.
I also have a game engine that uses C#/XNA features of silverlight I would like to extend this to allow for constant buffers that support arrays in an optimized fashion.
Also I would like to see the base .NET runtime become open source...(NOTE: this doesn't mean all the MS frameworks need to be open, just the runtime).Andrew supported this idea ·
