Xamarin and .NET Core - Msft Connect

wallymwallym USInsider, Beta ✭✭✭

I'm just now getting to listen to the connect videos now. Is there going to be a relationship between Xamarin, Mono, and .NET Core? For example, Msft finally announced that .NET Core 3 is going to support Windows Desktop apps. Will a future release of Xamarin support .NET Core under the hood? Will there be some semblance of merging in the future?

    I think that's Microsoft's objective when they created .NET Core: One framework to rule them all. So I'm pretty sure that at some point, .NET Core will replace Mono. Now the question is when? I would say (guessing by the progress made until now) that it would happen around .NET Core 5-6 (2-3 years from now).
