Weekly Vote Report for Friday, February 26, 2016

WOW!  What a REALLY BUSY and exciting week!  First, the premiere vote on which I founded this site, Create a Ubiquitous .NET Client Application Development Model passed WELL over 2,000 votes (2,161 at the time of this report, in fact!) and was marked as Under Review by the Visual Studio team!  And then a day later Microsoft announced the acquisition of Xamarin.  I am still personally trying to process it all, but let’s just say that it feels like Microsoft is finally starting to turn things around and get their house in order once again.  We are all now really looking forward to //build and Evolve to see what announcements they have in store.

Finally, after much debate, I have decided to add Allow .NET games on Xbox One to the list of Ubiquitous .NET votes that I track here.  Usually when I (or “we”) talk about an “application” model, we usually do not think games, but when you think about all the great models out there — WPF in particular — they do indeed allow this component and do it well.  This is also part of the reason why these models get so much adoption and traction.

So, with all of that excitement out of the way, let’s see if I can contain myself and get you the list of votes for this week.
