[Mono-dev] Mono and dotnetNuke

You should at least consider looking into mojoportal. It is completely in c# and already works with mono and supports open source databases like MySQL PostgreSQL and SQLite in addtion to MS SQL.
I would be very surprised if DNN does not have some legacy VB syntax that uses the VB library. Even things like Instr() and such would be legacy syntax but many VB developers will keep on using it because it works.

I will say the first time you get one of your ASP.NET apps running on linux it feels like magic. I know I've been hooked ever since. :-)

              Well – i will test it over the Weekend and let you know the Result. J
   I am still wondering, that so less Developers are working with Mono. And that there is no Partnership between the dnn- and mono-Project !?
   I am fascinated to develop with Windows/IIS/C# - and the Result can be run with Windows OR Mono. Because:
     That’s most possible Flexibility!   Linux/Mono needs much less Resouces   It runs with smaller CPU-Power   Enables me to use free SQL-Databases like MySql or Postgres   No Licensecosts for the OS   More Provider offering housing/hosting Linux-Environment for lower      Costs   May be, Linux is more stabil   May be, Linux needs less Amount of Administration   May be, Linux is more safe against Attacks   And so on and so on…

 I'm sure that dnn doesn't use any VB6 legacy syntax. We use lot of dnn in windows environment and 
 I think that run dnn on mono shouldn't be big problem (of course dnn compiled under windows because of mono vb compiller).
 What more - You can write additional modules in c#, that it means only core must be compiled under windows.

I am not using it, but the fact that is written in VB probably means that can't compile (yet) with the Mono VB compiler (MBAS). And it is possible too that the code uses VB6 legacy syntax and keywords [1], so as not being able to run it with Mono only with the assemblies compiled in VS.NET.
