Just held talk on Zagreb MSCommunity Future Dev UG about Xamarin 3 and 
because one student asked me to hold Xamarin.Forms I did everything else 
with emphasis on core mono and the best sample was ASP.ne[x]t

Suse, Centos, Ubuntu worked like charm, like Windows 8.1 demo, only 
Debian had problems that kpm did not work that well. I had no unzip 
installed and error was really hidden.

Even managed to make more complex samples to work BugTracker worked, but 
not MusicStore. Mostly package manager problems.

So main things to be careful:

 1. certificates
    sudo $CERTMGR -ssl -m https://go.microsoft.com
    sudo $CERTMGR -ssl -m https://nugetgallery.blob.core.windows.net
    sudo $CERTMGR -ssl -m https://nuget.org
    sudo $CERTMGR -ssl -m https://www.myget.org/F/aspnetvnext/

    mozroots --import --sync

    added this one: https://www.myget.org/F/aspnetvnext/
    weird exceptions about invalid package format, or wrong certificate
    environment variable must point to $MONO_PREFIX/lib, where
    $MONO_PREFIX is prefix for mono compilation
    TODO: how and where to put it during startup
 3. kpm restore
    try (even on windows)- kpm restore -s

I guess this is it.

It works almost 1:1.

OK. I was not that deep.

I'll try to make MusicStore and BugTracke work first.
