Re: IBM and Microsoft now open the "Windows"
I have mostly low hopes, if that's the right term. I think MSFT is very entrenched in the ways of old, and too big to change.

But, could be wrong, so let's wait and see

Re: IBM and Microsoft now open the "Windows"
I have high hopes for Microsoft under Nadella. I think he's going to do whatever it takes to make sure the company takes a more device agnostic approach. Whereas with Ballmer he was infuriated by the idea of people using iPhones and iPads, this new CEO realizes the future has arrived and it doesn't always include Microsoft as the center of everything.

Re: til now
Unfortunately this is the case so far - the developer needs to use iOS's own language, tools to develop iOS app. There are cross-platform tools but they have limitations to some extent.

til now
software that could help programmers simplify bridging the gap 

So what have programmers been doing until now? Creating their own coding for each project?

IBM and Microsoft now open the "Windows"
As an between jobs 50+ year old U.S NAVY vet, I was my given a last chance to learn iOS9 programming thanks to a sponsorship from udemy  ( ). I was not sure I wanted to go the Apple route at this age, but after reading about IBM moving to more MAC's as desktops and now this move by Microsoft I tried my first MAC since the 1980's. Ok, I worked for both IBM and Red Hat and felt I knew computers, boy was I missing the boat!

iOS, Android, Windows 10 here I come .....

p.s. Microsoft's Windows 10 Technical Preview ROCKS!!!!!!
