This document deals with some cross-platform issues.

Subject: [Mono-list] Visual Studio and non-Windows deployment


Hi, I'm just looking into Mono, and trying to get a handle on exactly
what is there, and what I need to do. First of all, I gather there's
currently no Mono IDE for a Windows environment? I did glance at the
MonoDevelop page, but it said it's only for Linux and Mac - is there any
plans/timeline for this to be extended to Windows? Or is there another
IDE I'm missing?


Anyway, without a Mono IDE I guess I'm looking at using Visual Studio.
(I realize I could use gtk#/Glade - but I'd rather have a full blown
IDE, even if it means a bit more hassle when it comes to deploying).
Now, I read the FAQ, and it said that I could still code in Visual
Studio, and have my program run using Mono (as long as I avoided
anything specific to .Net 2.0). But I'm unclear on how that applies to
multi-platform deployment ... what would be involved in getting my
program (writting in Visual Studio under Windows) running on a Mac or
Linux box?


And one more question - at the very start of the FAQ, it lists a bunch
of different libraries. The first few have links, but most don't ...
where do I get these other libraries from? (like Mono.Data, Mono.XML
