        Xamarin has been a disappointment. More important is the news that Windows 10 for PC – the full desktop version – is coming to mobile ARM processors in 2017.

        Users will be able to install any x86 Win32 app – unmodified – from any source, no repackaging as UWP or delivery via the Windows Store required. The apps are not sandboxed and they will have full access to the OS.
        Microsoft demoed a device easily running the full Adobe Photoshop app along with Microsoft Office.

        Good news for VB6 programming

        Please add vb.net support - My company has too many vb.net assets to change to c#. If Xamarin does not support it, we will probably just go native development which I don't want.

        I am a professional vb.net software developer. over 25 years experience. I know how to code c#, but intentionally choose not to. I can't find a single valid argument to switch and we won't entertain using Xamarin unless it supports VB.NET... period.

        I understand that Microsoft feels the time for VB to die is now. Pity. I find it unbelievable that they would choose to kill it now. There is a wealth of VB knowledge that can be utilized but M wants to kill it off simply to be "modern" and move forward with a language that provides no real advantages over VB in order to have a modern "profile". To paraphrase the words of the long forgotten Mr. T "I pity the fool" who shoots himself (or herself) in the foot to look cool.

        I use VB.NET for all my websites on ASP.NET and I can not undestand thath wiht de same CLR Xmarin does not support VB.NET.
        Please, we need Xamarin support for CLR .NET

        Please support VB.NET.
        All my websites are written in VB.NET.
        I would rather program in the language I am used to.

        Please, please, PLEASE add VB.Net Support. We're an all VB.net shop where I work. I can't work from home effectively without the support.

        Then again, I also keep getting access denied when I try to open the solution files.

        frmMDIMain!mnuViewStatusBar.Checked in VB. When we convert to VB.Net it is converted as CStr(CType(frmMDIMain.Controls("mnuViewStatusBar"), Object).Checked). but getting Nullreference Exception "Object variable or With block variable not set."

        Please add VB.NET support. We can't use Xamarin unless you add the support for VB. We are a team of 10 developers. Thanks

        If you want to more developer to use xamarin.

        Then

        In the current developer world there is VB.NET Developer is 100 time more then C# Developer & Very More Experienced.

        Because VB.Net is Very Easy Language & More Then 75% (Estimated) of VB6 Developer now use VB.NET

        So Add VB.NET Language Support as fast as possible.
