I just heard that they are working on a compiler option to compile .NET into native code with such advertising as "It will perform as well as native C++."\n\nWhile I am not going to buy into performance claims right away, this does scare me, in that C++ might be used much much less if it goes well.\n\nTo add to that fear, they are planning on supporting DX12 in this native .NET code as well! Ack! That was one place where I knew my C++ would be needed, but now people will be doing another round of game programming in .NET.\n\nWhat do you think? Are we C++ guys losing our value? Is this bad for us, but good for the world?
