I’m an absolute C# fanatic who has been quietly hoping for a Linux port of the .NET framework for years. You can imagine that my last two months have been filled with suspense and excitement – so much, in fact, that I find myself wishing there was a way to start a new C# codebase targeted at corefx right now, before coreclr/corefx are actually viable.
Have you considered coming up with and publishing a comprehensive list of assemblies/namespaces that will be open sourced under corefx? With such a list, it would be possible for developers to target .NET Core in parallel as its being developed. Extra points for including a Visual Studio 2015 “CoreFX” framework target!
