Why is Logos 4 compiled as a 32 bit application under OS X. I am running the Kernel as 64 bit and Logos is one of the few applications I have that has not made the jump to 64 Bit.

Currently Logos 4 is a 32 bit application on Mac OS X and Windows.  For Windows, migration to .Net Framework 4 is a future plan => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/29236/233682.aspx#233682

For Mac, anticipating Mono project demise along with open source project replacement(s) => http://weblogs.asp.net/chrishardy/archive/2011/05/17/xamarin-the-future-of-monotouch-and-mono-for-android.aspx

Looking at "antiquated" Mono web site, noted 64 bit supported for Mac OS X => http://www.mono-project.com/Supported_Platforms

Wiki page Logos Speaks includes 32 and 64 bit as it relates to Smart Tags and Logos as a whole and WPF 4.0 is out, why hasn’t Logos 4’s fonts improved yet? 

Observation: Logos 4 user base includes 32 bit and 64 bit operating systems (along with older hardware that cannot run 64 bit).  Thankful enabling 64 bit kernel in Snow Leopard noticeably improves performance for 32 bit Logos 4 Mac.

Sigh... the old Mono story. So it has a new monkey moniker, I just hope we're not all chimps for using it.

I can't quite figure out this Miguel de Icaza guy and his obsession with Microsoft technologies and supposedly making them 'open source' (a dangerous proposition in itself - it's like having a tiger by the tail and saying it will never turn around and bite you). 

C# and .NET, sure, that's one thing, but he's got the same obsession with Silverlight a Microsoft product that Microsoft itself is dumping. Doh, it's dead, and he wants to port an open source copy of it to mobile platforms. Great thinking - only problem is by that stage there will be no Silverlight content left on the web to display. That should be a good product to monetize.

Just hope he points all those old Novell programmers in the right direction quickly to keep Mono off life support before they jump ship for more secure jobs.

Windows Phone 7 editorial => http://pocketnow.com/thought/editorial-sales-predictions-and-mishandling-windows-phone-7 includes prediction link => 2nd place in smartphone market share by 2015

Microsoft developer site has Features Supported in Silverlight for Windows Phone 

Silverlight developer page has news and blog entries this month.  Last month, a blog announced Silverlight Beta 5 (follow-up to Dec 2010 Silverlight Firestarter event).

In comparison, last news entry for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) development was Nov 2010.  Microsoft's Pete Brown blog response to "... fewer and fewer WPF..." includes:

1. Blogging tends to slow down around spring/summer
2. I need to update my list of folks I aggregate. Many of the SL/WPF bloggers have been writing about Windows Phone 7 lately
3. Blogging about WPF has definitely slowed down over the past year. I don't think that reflects interest in the technology, however.

 

Logos 4 on Windows uses WPF.  Using mono allows Logos 4 to share substantial code base between Mac and PC.  Logos 4 Mac user interface is written in Objective C.  Thankful can easily switch platforms using Logos 4; looking forward to many improvements.

Bradley has listed a few of the reasons we have not made the switch to 64bit in this post http://community.logos.com/forums/p/22045/167346.aspx#167346.
