The framework: http://www.mono-project.com/
The IDE: http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/

Has anyone tried it?

Hi

Yes, I have quickly evaluated this twice ( once about a year or 18 months or so ago, and again about 2 months ago ).

My conclusions where that whilst it seems to be actively developed and lots of it does work, its not quite ready for Prime Time yet, as there are still missing features ( all listed in the Mono FAQ iirc ).

Definatly one to keep an eye on though Smile.

Cheers

Dave

Dude... I tried Sharp Develop right now, and I must say I really liked it!
I really DON'T like .NET platform thought... but since .NET will come as standard in windows and business development is going to the dark side called "Bloatware Fast Deployment", I'm going to prefer this tool, since it's free and works very nice. Nobody needs to buy expensive VB.NET to target .NET platform easily!

I really prefer coding in pure ASM and C. But now I'm studying Computer Science at my university, I must open my mind to the market. So I must learn all kinds of programming environments.
And ASM coding is my eternal hobby and source of knowledge! Very Happy
Just one question: Is it possible to interface low-level Win32ASM with .NET applications?




Well, I've tried 3 *free* RAD environments, that maybe will be usefull to someone:
* Lazarus: Delphi clone, with similar IDE and forms designer. Uses Free Pascal as compiler and is available in lots of platforms. ( www.lazarus.freepascal.org/ )
* Wx-Dev-Cpp: Dev-C++ rebuilt to work with wxWidgets cross-platform GUI LIB. Includes forms designer. ( http://wxdsgn.sourceforge.net/ )
* Sharp Develop: IDE for targeting .NET in C# or VB.NET. ( http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/ )

You can use native DLLs from .NET apps.

Yeah! But the express editions need WinXP SP2, and mine is SP1.
SharpDevelop is both cheap in money and time (to install SP2). Plus it's opensource and activelly developed. And I think is more light-weight.
And existis MonoDevelop (port to Linux targeting Mono Framework)

Unfortunately, I do not like the VB.NET language. It changed a lot since VB6, plus it's not worth the bloat, just to have easier GUI designer. This can be done with pure C++ too, and better with ASM, using great IDE's like RADasm and others.

there's another framework called DotGnu (www.dotgnu.org/).

.net is great in a way that it still allows us to use existing technology (e.g using COM, or DLLs written in native code) and at the same time provide new technology.

maybe we need to start learning .net's il assembly right now Smile.
