Hi all,

Since it's been a month that the mono project released version 1.0

Did anyone use it for software development? I'm waiting for the System.Windows.Forms module to be incoorperated, then I'll start using mono. This is expected later this year

I tried it on slack 10 just when it was released. Couldn't get monodevelop to work so only had to test very basic C# hello world program by using it via the shell. GNOPPIX also comes with it bundled but monodevelop doesn't run their either.

n3m3sis, I use it all the time for my work. I agree the major incompatibility between that and MS .NET is the SWF namespace. There are of course other namespace like System.EnterpriseServices that are just stubs in the code, but they aren't used nearly as often than SWF.

As for the state of the code, it's quite production ready. Novell is using it for several of their projects, and several companies are using it as part of their commercial products.

s7r1k3r, what problems did you have compiling monodevelop? I've used it from the very beginning of the project and have had a pretty good experience with it.

So is it worth learning C# as opposed to already fully available Java DK for Linux?

Yes indeed! what you will do in next 5 yeras when majority of the computers shiped with pre-installed linux? No one really like to write their applications again from scratch, I hope you have got my point :)
A: Yes
Q: Is top-posting bad?

n3m3sis, if Java suits you, there's no reason to go for .net/mono. Choosing any particular technology over another one is a decision that varies from person to person. The reponsibility is upon you to pick the right tool for the job.
