    uff, from time to time I get reminded that it is pronounced as Zamarin... but I anyway call it Xamarin (with X as X). Why on the earth somebody decided to pronounce X as Z....

    Btw, do you also pronounce XOR (eXclusive OR) as ZOR? :)

    @exim: X followed by a vowel is pronounced using a Z. Xerxes is pronounced Zerxes. Xanadu is pronounced Zanadu. Xamarin is pronounced Zamarin. And if XOR was a real word in the language, then yes, it would be pronounced Zor. :)

    Btw, any news about Xamarin.Forms? This is the main selling point for many - but I have an impression Forms doesn't have a good reputation, does it?

    What's in the roadmap for this? Any plans to further develop it?
