Doesn't seem like any reason that it wouldn't be native.

Agree. But it is a big deal. If the CLR is ported to ARM then any c#/vb code will run very efficiently on ARM without even needing to be recompiled or making use of the x86 emulation. That's a big deal for a corporate environment.

I just have a tough time imagining that Microsoft wouldn't (or hasn't given RT) the CLR to ARM. It would be news if it wasn't ported.

It has been, I'm running one such example on my Raspberry Pi 2 right now. It's just a DynDNS updater. Written in UWP.

I have tried it in CLR and native (machine code via .NET Native) modes. Both work great.

I'm pretty sure my Pi runs on an ARM chip, anyway
