Fun is... using the same code on three different platforms. XAMLFinance shows us how.

    This is just so cool. I like the way that I didn't have to learn anything new for developing for windows phone. Same language, same environment, same xaml (pretty much), and I can take my apps desktop experience to another device. I'm completing my first win phone app and love the way I can just re-use code and mark-up between the desktop version of the app.

    @Jamest: Apple will need to support XAML for that to happen. I don't use Mono so don't know what became of the moonlight project, but if it is alive, in theory you could use some of the XAML to build apps for iOS.

    In any case, using Mono, you can still use your .NET code for other platforms so there is still some level of re-use. 

    What this post highlights is the almost seamless experience of building on the Windows ecosystem. Which is great.
