Your "2 cents" are appreciated.
To expand on my previous answer, it's not just a matter of where to focus. A rewrite to MF is pretty much a rewrite from scratch. It also means a significant chunk of code in C++. Until the recent
VS Community Edition
announcement, that seemed like it might make things difficult for many. I had been keeping an eye on the
to see when WP7 would fall into the single digits, but WP7 is still around 15%. At this rate, it looks like WP8's share will drop below WP7's share before that happens (let's see if WP10 is out before WP8.1 manages to do so). On the other
along with the MS announcement you mentioned, do suggest that it is time to "stick a fork in it." Besides, it's not like I'm going to delete the existing code.
Believe me, supporting everything slightly differently for both VS 2012 (the latest that will support Silverlight/WP7) and VS 2013 (the first to support Win8.1) and dealing with platform idiosyncrasies is not my idea of fun (e.g., WP7's glass-jawed MediaStreamSource
in some places).
We'll see if VLC for WP renders this all moot anyway. (Or is the GPL keeping people away from it?)
Would anyone else care to venture an opinion?
