Big news from the Game Developers Conference this week is the XNA Framework. From the press release:
The XNA Framework contains a custom implementation of the Microsoft® .NET Framework and new game-development-specific libraries designed to help game developers more easily create cross-platform games on Windows® and Xbox 360 using the highly productive C# programming language. Using the XNA Framework, game developers will benefit from the ability to re-use code and game assets in developing multiplatform titles, without sacrificing performance or flexibility.
So now I can the Xbox to the list of personal technology I can program, joining my phone, my TV, my server and my laptop all with C# or VB (VB plug brought to you by Brian and Erik who think I should to switch). I wonder if XNA Framework will support WPF?
BTW, I still want an easy way to program my house and my car, but I’m sure those are coming.
Where else should the CLR live?
