I gotta say this is a nice friendly list, that is an excellent sign for the
project you guys are working on.
In view of the number of replies I have recieved answering this question,
I will try to put together a "digested version" of your answers for any
lurking newbies who were not prepared to ask.
What I wanted was recomendations on linux friendly books:
For Newbies to programming:
"Thinking in C#" had a few fans, for begginers and above:
http://www.thinkingin.net/ticsharprc1.htm. It has a downloadable but
O'Reilly publishing "Programming in C#"
From MS publishing, Inside C# got a big rap...even for the mono platform
Teach Yourself C# in 21 days, has at least one fan
For the non-newbie, new to C#:
A Programmer's Introduction to C# by Eric Gunnerson was recomended for the
non-newbie programmer, who might be new to C#...this looks attractive to me,
though I don't have a heap of coding experience.
There is a nutshell book on the subject, which is probably a good description
of what the book is likely to give...just the facts (Is this book aimed at
the experienced programmer?).
Unpsecified level of experience:
Professional C# from http://www.wrox.com.
Check out the link. It has a staunch believer,
the whole book works from a text editor and command prompt...
should suit the linux minded (working on gui development software??:)).
I will hunt one of these down.
