Re: The OS War is Going to Heat Up, and it isnít just Apple versus Microsoft
The OS war has been heating up since the sixties when OSes were invented and it's going to do so indefinately.
So how do developers avoid heat shock? Same as always by using non-proprietory languages and standards. Simple as that.
In most cases this translates to plain C++ in combination with widely adopted industry standard interfaces. Don't touch stuff that's special to Microsoft, Apple, Google, Oracle, Linux or whatever, unless you have to. Then keep exposure to a minimum.
