Fast-Nop1717114dMake is also a bunch of crap that has even issues with spaces in filenames - not to mention the reliance on ordered timestamps. Oh and the make "language" is also godawful.
inaba494314dYou neither need VS or VS Code to run C#. You can use Jetbrains Rider or even nano since all you really need to do is install dotnet core, run "dotnet new [type]" to create a new project and then "dotnet run" to build and run it. There's also "dotnet watch run" if you want to rebuild it on save. Also from where did you get the impression that you needed cordova for xamarin?

Java these days is basically either Spring based server side, or Android based client side. The goto IDE is generally IntelliJ or Android studio these days (though personally I still prefer Netbeans.)
KDSBest12714dThis rant has a lot false information
MrCSharp542713dXamarin needs Cordova? Are you sure mate?
MrCSharp542713dAlso, MS doesn't lock you into VS. It just so happens that VS is the best IDE out there so people prefer using for C#.
You can use JetBrain's Rider if you like though
Wisecrack66813dIt's the impressions resulting from 15 minutes of research.
Two sites I read said running c# on android would require cordova.
