C# .NET 3D Frameworks - Part III

Mogre the last of the C# .NET 3D Framework candidates is now months behind Ogre, the library it's wrapping. This and a quick look at the forums gives all the indications, that this framework will stale away rather sooner than later.

My conclusion is, that I will not use wrapped frameworks, even if the wrapper is maintained by the originators. If the wrapper framework is maintained by a third party, people inevitably will lose interest at some time and the wrapper stales. If the wrapper is maintained by the original frameworks maintainers, it's obviously not their choice language in the first place and the same thing will happen. Wrappers can't win and consequently they also don't.
