Smile [Q] XobotOS Port

Hello,

I have heard that android has been ported to C#.
While this is a big thing, the reason why I am sharing this is that the performance of the C# Android version is superior than the Java one.

So my question is that can it be ported to our Heros?

Here is the link to the blog post and the github:

Since is a translation from Java to C, I believe that the apps will run with no problem if a system is made to translate back from C to Java. Well, I guess that it will be a major step but we don't know if the drivers and all will be functional. All we have to do is wait

C and c# are two totally different languages. C# had more in common with java though. Sorry, just had to point it out :P

I guess it is possible to use it. But I'm a bit sceptical whether the graphs are fair

Cheers, R

sorry, but I can't find user by the name of Nickoltus.

Can we have a word from a developer if its going to be made or is somebody working on it?
