Mint & VB.NET

Postby Shaddix on Tue Sep 22, 2009 4:44 am

in school I have to learn .net (especially vb.net)

now I like to work as much as possible in Mint, but for these .net lessons I always boot in XP

is there any way to develop .net in Mint as easy as in XP?

the mono project is a free software reimplementation of the .net framework, I believe the IDE is called "monodevelop" in the Package Manager.

I dont think that it is good to develop .NET applications on Linux.
But in my opinion it's better to install windows in virtual box and do your work with .NET

yes, after some experimentation I decided to do my VB.NET coding in Virtual Box, I might give MonoDevelop a shot for C# and ASP because that part looks quite ok

That's probably the best choice, it may happen that the .Net framework will need additional extensions or applications that might only be available within .Net or as a windows file.
--and it will more closely match the coursework.

Even if you became a .Net developer, you might not use Mono, for these same reasons.
--it is also not really Mint vs VB.net development, it is more of a... which platform matches the requirements for VB or .Net development

Also, after a while, you might want to have a look at Gambas for object oriented basic development

--unless working within that .Net framework becomes important.
