    Visual Studio 2010 coming for Mac OS X

    Slashdot recently posted this article:

    Latest Apple confab rumor: Microsoft CEO Ballmer coming? - Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal

    Not much to it, except two sentences:

    "Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been given seven minutes during Jobs' keynote to talk about Visual Studio 2010. Chowdrey said that a new version of the development tools software will support native applications for the iPhone, iPad and Mac OS."

    This surprised me, so I looked and found a couple more articles on the topic:

    This one was posted in April: DigiOz Programming Blog: Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 for mac OS X

    This one was also just posted today, so it's fresh: Visual Studio 2010 -- TUAW

    Is Visual Studio 2010 really coming for Mac OS X? If so, I wonder what languages they are going to support other than Objective-C which was stated in the first article. Do you think there will be any .NET support? This is intriguing news.

    On a final note:

    Google Pacman

    It lives!!!!!!!!!!!

    I highly doubt that there will be any .NET migration to OS X. The good news that might come out of this (though not necessarily mentioned in the key notes) is that Visual Studio 2010 for Windows might support iPhone/iPad development which is currently only available in XCode on a Mac. This would be a great thing for both Apple and Windows.

    That said, my experiences with the latest few versions of Visual Studio has been very favorable and I'm glad to see their market expanding.

    I am the author of the blog "DigiOz Programming Blog". The article in question turned out to be an April Fool's joke, so no Visual Studio is not coming to Max OSX ... lol

    Ooook, lol!
    Reading the links above I was totally convinced too. Kudos!

    I don't think it's a joke. Look at
    Tech·Ed North America 2011
    and tell me that you don't see Visual Studio 2010 running on MacOS X. Unless I'm missing something, that's exactly what this hour-long presentation shows.

    That's Visual Studio running inside a Virtual Machine in MacOs.

    Anyways, read the forum rules. Don't necro old threads.
