Bullish on Swift

Standard

So glad Apple announced that Swift 2.0 is open source.
Open Source is such a buzz word lately. Even Microsoft Open Sourced .net, great.

Then AppleĀ said it would be available on Linux, and now we can sit around the camp fire
and share some amazing, scary stories of the Ghost of Steve Jobs or
the Scott Forstall Monster (I love you, Scott)

In the bigger scheme of things this could be interesting.

Hold my hand, let’s dream together okay, I’ll be gentle.

Dreams

  • Ubuntu embraces Swift to help, Developers get OSX/iOS Apps to Ubuntu Desktop & Ubuntu Touch
  • GNOME Builder adds support for Swift so that people can easily build Apps in Swift for Linux

Nightmares

  • Microsoft ports Swift to Windows, because they are scared swiftless
  • There will be an approved, Swift Air build mostly hot air, released in short bursts.
  • Swift Air will be powered Fast Apple Real Time processing (Swift Air FART)
  • with FART there will be less Core Dumps, better Code Cleanup and less Buffer overflows.
  • FART relieves congestion allow more thread throughput
  • FART requires less gestures like sWiping and pinch to zoom

Apple loves Open Source that’s probably why Darwin isn’t around anymore, I guess they evolved
Anyway, congratulations.
