Salamander .NET Linker, Native Compiler and Mini-Deployment Tool
This was my idea!!!
I'm a C# guy (till now at least) and I thought if I can have the ability to convert my MSIL code to native machine code the idea is combining the power of native code and the productivity of C# and VB.NET so I googled maybe someone talked about this before..
and not only talked there's already a tool do this whole converting to native code I don't know if I was living in a cave (it's hard keeping up with all the kicks, diggs, rss and all that thrown in to my browser every single day)
This tool - .NET Linker - been there for a while and it's basically conevet your IL code with all the referenced BCL classes to a native - very fast - code.
I don't know how these guys do things like memory management I didn't read much into it but I was thinking if Microsoft adopte the same idea into the v.next of Visual Studio so we can compile to IL or Win32, sounds like great idea... maybe they hire the guy as well.
