C# – Mono on Mac OS X

Mono Project LogoI’m always up for trying new ways of not having to boot up VMWare Fusion, and when searching for C# code, I came by a blog about something using Mono. Mono is a cross platform solution for using .NET and it is open source, which means I can write, compile and execute C# in MacOSX.

I found its strangely easy to setup, though I have yet to get WinForms to work from the examples, I have got console apps working. And with the console app, I have been able to use XPath.

The only downside was it took an hour to download from their website, which is quite bad for only 50MB.
