[Mono-list] Does Mono Basic support lag behind C#?

Greetings Timotheus,

I was hoping to use MonoDevelop to build client applications for use with
SQL DB's, client/server, not web apps.

I have been advised to select C# over VB.net if I head down the .Net / Mono
path. Having to learn a new language - in my mind "six of one / half dozen
of another" as either way it is new material.

Running MonoDevelop, a test HelloWorld app fails to even create for C#, and
trying the same for VB.net results in MonoDevelop not being able to run the
sample Gtk# form on account of some file being missing. Anyway, since I
would be leaning towards C#, creating a Gtk# 2.0 Project results in:

An error has occurred.
File Widget could not be written.
System.IO.IOException: Invalid parameter

lastWriteTime) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

(MonoDevelop.Projects.SolutionItem policyParent,
MonoDevelop.Projects.ProjectCreateInformation projectCreateInformation,
System.String defaultLanguage, MonoDevelop.Projects.SolutionEntityItem item)
[0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 

So, did I misunderstand you or will GUI apps developed on Linux not port
smoothly to Windows?

Again, I am not talking about web services... I am talking about fat client

Thank you!
