    Really hope we'll hear more about .net native soon, especially for non store apps.

    We've heard that both asp.net5 and .net native will run .net core, and we're able to write "asp.net 5 console apps" that hanselman said at some point is actually ".net core" console apps. so it's reasonable to infer that console apps could also be compiled with .net native

    This is super interesting from an native interop perspective, in perticular for games and as a kind of replacement for managed directx programming. another huge thing would be as a replacement for the microframework. this is also sometihng that's been alluded to but i really hope we can get some hard info on that soon.

    Are you going to have public standups and/or monthly meetings (streamed) once the project is completely open?

    When can we expect to see the CoreCLR source code on github? I absolutely love this low-level stuff and I am very excited about it.

    Are they mentioning XNA at any point?

    We're currently focused on moving the core platform into open source in order to support ASP.NET 5 as well as .NET Native. We haven't made any plans yet what the next app models might be.

    Are you going to have public standups and/or monthly meetings (streamed) once the project is completely open?

    We probably wouldn't live stream our stand-ups but we do think about making our internal processes and review meetings available.

    Does your team have a favorite Linux distro?

    My answer would be Mac OSX, which clearly shows you much I know about Linux :)

    When can we expect to see the CoreCLR source code on github?

    We don't have a specific date, but we shoot for ~Q1 2015.
