[Mono-dev] Where to start with Mono 2.0?

If your intent is to develop that will run on Mono in Linux, it is better to
use the VM approach and have the Linux image, to test deployment and
operation issues. You can develop in VS.NET in Windows and "deploy" it in
the Linux image, and even debug it running in the VM from VS.NET.

Moma already tells the type of problem, and if it is a portability issue
(which should be normally solved in the application side) or a Mono issue
(like an unimplemented feature) which should be directed to the mono team on
the bug reporting page.

Also Gendarme can be used to have your application checked for bad
practices, in general, and specifically about portability.

Hope it helps,
