if you don't know mono...

P: n/a
Programmers everyday are making a tragic error by not learning mono.

Mono is te standard .net implementation for Windos and Linux.

Learning mono is the key to writing fast, OOP, cross platform applications.

Mono virtualized the OS in the most efficient way possible -- making
Linux programming a dream, instead of a chore.

Go mono !

Since you're advocating it, why not post some links or FAQ's about it. I personally work with
Windows and Linux and have for many years... and I've never heard of 'mono'.

Take care,

Alex.

Because it's so new, there's not a whole lot to go on, BUT:

The main site is:
http://www.go-mono.com/

The Windos install is super simple(!)
The Linux install is medium hard ( but Suse includes it in it's distro ).
And a community support site
http://www.gotmono.com/
The GTK# tutorial is fun:

I have nothing against Mono personally, although I did not like the Mono I
had in high school (only kidding, I really loved it too!). ;->

Mono is a bit behind, although it is a nice open source implementation.

Compiler isn't perfect. The error messages suck and it occasionally emits
incorrect code. The libraires are pretty fair(though not as feature complete
as .NET 1.1) but the compiler has enough problems to make using csc.exe a
better option often enough.

Also, the most annoying thing with it: At times version you compile yourself
(on windows under cygwin anyway) doesn't pass all the tests, while the
binary version they provide does.

Any books on Mono or .net that you'd recommend? I wouldn't be surprised
if there's an O 'Reilly's book by now that was out for 6 months
already.
