As an objectivec developer using Xcode since 5 years, I am used to have my IDE crash every two or three hours. After many years of this symptom, It now feel, very reassuring to crash during a code session.
On Xamarin Studio after 1 month of usage I never had a crash. it's frustrating ... and user satisfaction is key in a platform adoption.Indeed familiarity should be considered as a feature, when you want to ease in the platform adoption.
**XCode STEP TO REPRODUCE :**
Just start it for more than 2 hours. You should have a satisfying crash, that most of time do not get you back your memory complety.
**Xamarin Studio Step to reproduce**
Just code and even after a day, not a single crash :/ Clearly something is wrong here.
A settings in XS to enable the "XCode Mode". Every hour or so, it could generate a random crash. In a future version I recommend also the use of bracket style everywhere and weird block structure.
I am also having this issue.
I suggest a background thread which does the equivalent of
sudo killall -9 XamarinStudio
As many users do not like having to restart XS and recover lost work, we have worked hard to make it more stable.
