Microsoft recently released the 1.0 version of their cross-platform implementation of .NET. So far I’ve only played with the samples and test apps they provide, but I really like what I see. I do have some exposure to C# and .NET in general so it isn’t completely foreign but there are still a few things to get used to (mainly due to the fact this is the first time we’ve seen native .NET support for OSX/Linux). Well, second, if we count Mono but I don’t and I’m not sure how it compares to this. I’ll break my comments down into 3 sections: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
