Wine Mono Project Still Integrating Mono's .NET
Phoronix: Wine Mono Project Still Integrating Mono's .NET
While it's been several months since the last Wine Mono release, its developers are still working on the open-source project for providing a replacement .NET run-time and class libraries in Wine with those from the Mono project...
They still have a bit of a ways to go - I was trying an ancient game on Wine recently, and Mono was failing to load it. Had to uninstall it and install .NET, then it worked.
Nevertheless, *THIS* is where MONO belongs...NOT in LINUX per se but in WINE.
With a bit of hard work and luck it will be an excellent alternative to .Net in WINE.
I gonna test new version (0.0.8) in next days together with most recent WINE (1.5.14)....
That and ports of proprietary games that depended on .Net previously. I can not really see an argument against its use there as it is not like the game is going to be free software anyway.
