Will “Visual Studio for mac” (aka Xamarin Studio re-branded) be a fork of “Xamarin Studio” or will the name just change?
.NET has a history of being fragmented (my guess is marketing). This causes a pain for developers who actually work on the tools and slows down progress for everyone at the end of the day. Needless fragmentation is something to avoid as it cost money and time.
My hope is this is just a name change and not a folk that will go down its own path.
