"...maybe I'm using one and don't even know it."

If the software really is doing it's job, then you shouldn't know it.

The package seems like a All-In-One solution that you may or may not come up with on you're own. It would be surprising if you were a serious developer and didn't already have you're dev enviroment "just right", so maybe there will be a few gems in it that could be handy that you didn't have before. Of course, this all comes down to if you're somehow using Microsoft's C# for Android and iOS applications. I highly suspect that the developers needing the absolute best GPU performance are NOT using C# on Android or iOS. So this aspect of the sales pitch seems a little awkward.

Also, IBM helping boost Microsoft mobile sales...who's freaking who here?
