Thank you...
Xamarin provides the solution, but their pricing and licensing is just disturbing.
Microsoft promises to provide it all free of charge with much better support in future Visual Studio 2015, but we know little detail. For now, Xamarin is supported by Visual Studio 2013.

Core CLR of .NET 5 (vNext?) can be installed on Linux too (can get on GitHub)...
Just like you I'm not sure if .NET based development for 'every' platform will be ever the future (I'm a kind of 'pick the right tool for the right job' guy...) but it is a very interesting thing and maybe it is more about how Microsoft will deliver tools to us developers in the future...

Agree. Look at some articles on Visual Studio 2015; the promise is truly intriguing. I'm going to wait...
An oter alternative to Xaramin is[^], worth trying. You can use it for free under certain circumstances, with Visual Studio support too. And commercial licensing costs also much less.
Still, I am also courious about VS2015 features...
