Yep, given that the iPhone/iPad still seem to be the priority platform for new software, lookout products doing the reverse (i.e. Xamarin making C# work on iOS/Android... etc...).  And long term, look out Java and C#, they will have stiff competition. 

Does anyone know if the "Foundation Framework" (all the NSxxx classes) must be present in any Swift App -- and how big is that framework?

I heard they were going to open source it, but did not realize that they had done it already. Probably a smart move by Apple. 

And yes, a 6809 target would be be COOL! for sure!
