Just add this to NETMF GitHub. You may want to weigh in https://github.com/N...eter/issues/491

While I agree with the passion of your argument I'm not sure that I agree with your logic.

 

From a company perspective [Microsoft] I feel that the focus for microcontroller development has moved from NETMF to Windows 10 IoT Core.  As such, Netduino, and I suspect GHI (although I don't follow their forums) will suffer.

 

For NETMF to continue to exist in the hobby market it needs to use gcc as the compiler, I don't think anyone other than a commercial company would want to invest the money in Keil or other commercial compilers to control their aquarium, open their doors, brew beer etc.  You can do this but it is not for the feint of heart.  If you are interested how to build with gcc go to Adafruits web site and look for Neopixels and Netduino.

 

I love the NETMF platform, it got me started with microcontrollers.  Having said this, time has moved on.  The rise of the single board computer means that there are more powerful platforms out there and I think that is where MS realised and moved on to.  So having said I love this platform which direction am I travelling.  Well it's a combination of ESP8266, STM8S, STM32 and Raspberry Pi.  With the exception of the STM8S, I can use Visual Studio with all of them.

 

Technology moves on and we must move with it.

 

We live in interesting times.

 

Regards,

Mark

It has normally been left to Secret Labs to update the NETMF version for the Netduino family.  As Chris and co no longer seem to be present then I'd say it is up to the community to create an update for the Netduino boards.
