Just wondering should we or should we not.
The disadvantage would be we may not be able to load gmk's etc.

I've just recently downloaded Visual C# Express

Microsoft has patents on parts of C# and are using them to spread FUD about GNU/Linux. They are trying to push out this patent-riddled technology to as many as possible, while threatening to sue those who use it without paying for a license (their target is GNU/Linux users). So stay away is all I will say.

Not to mention C# uses .NET which, even though is supposed to be cross-platform or was at one point, really isn't.

.NET is only slightly worse than Java for the IDE imo because I don't like installing the JRE >_>

.NET is yet another thing Microsoft made that only works in Windows, which really pisses off developers.

.NET/Mono is yet another thing Microsoft/Novell made that only works in Windows/Linux, which really pisses off developers.

No. Mono is NOT a valid alternative to .NET. Mono doesn't even fully support the first version of .NET, never mind the subsequent ones. Also, almost all real-world .NET programs use a mixture of .NET and WinAPI, so you need Wine too (and that isn't even properly native). Anyone that uses Mono has the threat of MS's software patents to deal with. The 'protection' from the Novell deal only extends to Novell paying customers.

Besides, C# isn't actually better than Java, so there's no point switching even if .NET was open (lol) and cross-platform.

Well I stand corrected then.

I don't have much experience with Linux anyway, and I just know of things like Beagle (it IS Beagle, right..?), Tomboy, etc...

Oh, yes, you can write apps like Beagle and Tomboy in Mono (though due to the patents issue it's not worth it), but it can't really be called .NET compatible.

I don't think .NET was ever planned to be cross-platform, more like 'cross-language'.  .NET does have some advantages.  You can write a C# app and convert the code to Java# which is pretty neat. Also it's 'easy' on the programmer and more productive.  But all-in-all I hate Microsoft for being so damn stingy with thier toys...

They should learn to share.

If it's on page one, I think bumping it's fair game.

Bumping newsposts is >_<" though.
