Code platform - if not .net or java, then what?

In the Guerrilla guide, it is suggested that .Net and Java aren't ideal. (at least that is how I read it).

What is the most common platform/IDE people develop apps in for PA?

I've been developing my skills in a cross platform IDE called RealStudio. Is this a viable option for PA pursuits?

to make apps portable we use

to make apps portable we use nsis (for the launchers) and any app we choose we prefer them to not depend on the .net framework (mostly because .net isn't on all computers at this time), and java well you can use java if you can get it to look for java portable, but apps that are coded in c/c++, delphi, any programming language really that isn't coded using .net would be ideal, now once .net becomes standard on windows etc, eventually we will start looking at adding .net based apps.

Thanks... so, for open source ...

Thanks. So I assume, if I were to head down the 'open source' path, regardless of which development platform I choose, I just need to make the source available. Even if the IDE is a visual (not completely textual) environment.

Does that sound completely correct?

regardless of ide you choose

regardless of ide you choose whether it's visual studio or code::blocks (just picked those two out of random) is just that an ide, the code you produce in that ide is what would need to be released if you choose the open-source path.

If this DOES occur in the

If this DOES occur in the future, could the app feed on the frontpage include (.NET) for .net apps? we should also do that for java apps too, considering you'd need the java portabilizer.
my only reason for asking about .NET is
a. WINE
b. I prefer to use open source apps that don't use .net...I'm just stubborn Blum (I will use one if its nice though)

.NET Separate

.NET apps won't be included in the main feed anytime in the near future due to portability issues.

Java apps will. The platform will handle getting Java. The Java apps' launchers will also explain it if it is missing.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
