Using Mono for cross platform C# app

Posted 04 November 2010 - 10:16 AM

Hello,

I have a .NET c# program that I would like to get up and running on other platforms, mainly Mac OS.

I have been looking at a tool called Mono, and was just wondering if anyone out there has any advice or experience using this tool?

Does it work well?

Is it worth the price?

What should I watch out for?

Am I looking completely in the wrong place hahah?

Anyway, any response would be great! Thanks!

I meant to say that Mono is free. There is no price. It's Open Source.

You can get it here.

As to whether it's worth it go ahead and give it a try. If it's not up to your expectations well you've got nothing to lose except a little time maybe. I haven't had much time to tinker with Mono so I can't comment on all of it's features.
