Does any of you have experience with C#. I guess C# is not a supported language of GCC, so is it possible to code with for example vim and compile with an opensource compiler?

Hello,

There is Mono and for sure editors adapted for.

But, as for Wine, I found counterproductive, or even evil to use Microsoft products running Windows in Linux. You will have more problems using Mono than using Visual Studio which is the best editor / compiler suite I have met since now.
And not all libraries are present in Mono : only those defined by the ECMA standard + gtk / Qt bindings, but none of the Microsoft libraries, of course.

So, if you need to learn Microsoft C#, stay on Microsoft OS and software suites.

Thanks for your answer!

Well until now I've used Wine only for playing games (old games like StarCraft 1) and it worked quite well. I've even heard that some windows programs run better with Wine than on windows, but I can imagine that there are many problems...

The problem is that I have installed windows 7 only on my gaming-machine (which I use very rarely) and I don't want to install it on any other machine.
So I guess I have to try running visual studio 2012 with wine and if that doesn't work I have to code on ETH computers :cry:

Visual Studio doesn't work with Wine: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=892

Frankly, using Windows app without the Windows OS is like alcohol free beers : it's not KISS ;)

In some pubs, you don't have the choice of the best beer ;)

At work, I am forced to run Windows for the corporate infrastructure applications, but most of the actual product development I do is embedded systems running Linux. My solution for my newly upgraded desktop machine will be to run a copy of Windows 7 under a VM (probably Xen; I'm still experimenting) with the underlying iron running Gentoo.

Visual Studio (which I use sporadically) will surely run under that. :wink:

I thought about VM's too, but I've got no experience with them.
Can you post your solution when it's working? :)
