      I'd bet the temperature units were in Kelvin. :P

      It needs to support Mac and Linux as well, so there's one UI model.

      Soo exciting.  Embedding Xamarin inside existing iOS and Android apps is simply awesome.  We have an existing app that would benefit a lot from a common code-base.  Re-writing is not an option.  Management do not want to spend the money.  But a slower upgrade to common code, is an easy sell.

      Thanks

      Jason, very cool indeed... when will WPF be brought into the fold? MSFT left out an entire domain with both UWP and XAMARIN. Is WPF on life support?

      Ok, so you are rebuilding silverlight again?

      Why didn't microsoft launch silverlight 6 with theese features? 

      Until MSFT doesn't clean up the SL mess, developer will not trust the platform, nor really embrace the store.

      @BrainOff:I agree, MSFT should stop expecting developer to rewrite the apps every time they come out with a new "Framework of the Month".

      I'm devastated that nothing was mentioned on support for more controls.

      For anyone coming from the WPF world be ready to implement many of the basic controls such as RadioButton and others by yourself.
