Discussion on: What If Swift Didn't Exist?

Sure, I'm not a fan of shared codebase because it usually results in one platform getting the short straw in some way shape or form.

But there is a lot of power available, and I'm excited to see how both languages evolve. It would be great if Apple and Google could get along to make something like one language work seamlessly on both platforms.. but Apple doesn't play nice, so I'm sure it'll only ever be accommodated by 3rd party work around which usually end up pretty hacky.

Yeah, I think Apple and Google getting along on this might be science fiction. On the surface neither company benefits from making the two platforms interoperable.
