Then I must have been living in a dream, since I've been hosting ASP.Net
apps under Mono+Linux+Nginx for several years, first with WebForms, and now
under MVC4/5, and they work like a charm. Of course you have to plan in
advance for a cross-platform environment (things like paths, user
impersonations, etc.), and there are some slight wrinkles here and there
(third party components that rely on Windows will not work, ) but my
workflow (develop in Visual Studio, build with Mono under Jenkins, test
there with JUint, deploy in Linux) is very reliable. I'm not saying this is
"the" way to go, one should to decide if some (very minor) inconvenience,
and a bigger difficulty in setting up the environment, is worth the
difference in cost for hosting and/or Windows licenses, including the added
flexibility of using Linux (scripting, usually better peformance, etc.)


P.S. Thanks to Edward Ned Harvey that made me realize I had replied to him
personally instead of sending my reply to the list.
