Trouble for the Mono team and projects…

EDIT: May 9, 2011 The latest I've heard is that the original layoff reports may have been a bit speculative. There has been nothing from the Mono team yet (that I've seen) to confirm or deny any layoffs. The little that has been said is that any existing product roadmaps will stay in place. I suppose this means that Mono has some life left. I'm hoping for the best, but still concerned about Mono's future.   Attachmate recently bought Novell. This also meant that they got the Mono team, including Mono, Moonlight, MonoTouch, MonoMac, and MonoDroid. Layoffs… It sounds Attachmate doesn't want anything Mono...

Goodbye Windows Mobile, Hello Droid 2!

My 2 years of Windows Mobile are over! Out with the old (Samsung Omnia) and in with the new! Just got a Droid 2 and I'm very excited! I was holding out for Windows Phone 7, but since it's not launching on Verizon until next year, I decided that I'd go with Android. It was a tough decision, but so far I think it was a good one. If nothing else, it will give me a chance to use a "modern" phone and see what I've been missing. I'm also hoping that I'll have a bit of...
