My name is Ashwin.I am a research student in Bioinformatics at
Leeds University in UK.I cam across your project called "Mono"
which could make c# compilable in unix/linux environment.I thought
this would be a very interesting project especially in Bioinformatics
point of view.I am very familiar with Java and related development
and had a short stint with C#.I am actually not too familiar with c#
but its being said that it scores over java especially in terms of
I am actually working on a paper, part of which deals with the
prediction of the computational language which is going to dominate
the field of Bioinformatics over the coming years.
Historically Bioinformatics related software development is heavily
unix/linux oriented.Thus its very important for a successful language
to be unix/linux compatable.
I will be greatly helped if you could breif me on the following aspects:
a)How stable will c# be when its programs are compiled in a unix
environment when compared to c,c++ or java?
b)I want your views on how user friendly is c# when compared to
java in general and what are the drawbacks/advantages of C# over
In anticipation of your reply.
