Here’s a rumor that’s sure to make the heads explode of fanboys from all corners: Steve Ballmer is said to be speaking at the keynote at Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference next week, talking about using Visual Studio 2010 to build apps for the Apple environment. Let the Internet be set ablaze!
The bigger news, however, is this would mark the end of Mac-only development for the iPhone OS. Up to this point, Apple had restricted their development tools to Mac OS X (which was logical given the iPhone OS is a scaled-down version of it). Opening it up to Windows users unlocks a huge developer audience for them. We live in interesting times.
