    Most of the time I'm developing I'm doing technical software, like linetracers ( did this in the nineties, still available http://www.datatech.se/index.php?link=products_close )
    and am currently in objectsecurity.
    We don't need consistent performance, some of our customers still use XP on a Pentium 4.

    We started thinking about Android because we use NFC and that is still not available in IOS.

    After using C# for 16 Years now, we used Xamarin for the Android Software and it was at that time a real hassle,
    because for mobile OS development, regardless which one, you have to change your mindset.

    Even back then it was quite easy to develop a business app for all 3 platforms with Xamarin, and with Xamarin.Forms
    I wouldn't even think about using anything else.

    And with the new Microsoft ( Visual Studio for MAC??? ) and the DotNet Core ( running on Win/MAC/Linux etc ) I don't have to think about that.

    I have never owned an Apple product, so I really don't care for the development for them.

    You know if this board had such a thing, I think the Surface Go would be up for product of the year, for the best mix of design, performance and price.

    Runners up/honorable mentions would be the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 and HP Spectre Folio

    Quick question, anyone knows if it's possible to use the nibs from the second generation surface pen (SB1) on the latest generation. The one I got on ebay didn't come with replacement nibs. I kinda like the finer point nibs.

    Thanks, any impact on the performance? The 2nd generation surface pen was a big letdown.

    I can't see any on the Surface Book 2 beside tilt working obviously better with the original nib and the 2H conical nib

    Dang it. I missed this. And this is why we need a “Where is Dale?” sticky.

    Let us know how you like HP. When do you get it? Will the SGO still be in the stable of machines as a travel computer?

    The Spectre Folio should be here Friday according to FedEx. The SGO has gone back to Microsoft - I really want this to be a single device experiment. It is large compared to the SGO, but I knew if I kept it around I'd drift off into two devices, besides the fact it was just too slow for some of my custom software.
