I am trying to better understand why this Writing application for Windows Mobile 6.1 options? was put on hold for being opinion based.
Note: It was not my question, but I provided an answer.
In my opinion, the question was not opinion based. It asked what coding languages can be used to write for Mobile 6.1 or 6.5. Although my answer received no negative feedback, the answer that I provided answered this question factually because I believed that the question was asking for a factual answer. The person asking the question also stated that they were looking for a language such as Java or C++ and as Visual C++ was an option for this type of application development, I highlighted this fact.
As per http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/opinion it does not seem to constitute an opinion. I can see it being opinion based if the question was something like "Which is easier for Mobile 6.1?"
This is just what I make of the situation, as I said, I would like to understand the reasoning behind this and if I am wrong, the reason why. Perhaps citing another reason for closure would have been better?
