    I know a lot of people on here dismiss anything Microsoft just because it's Microsoft, but this stuff is seriously neat and you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not taking a look at it.

      What's neat about it? It's just another development platform to add to the dozens of very good open source platforms on Linux.

          How to install it?
          Code:
          curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dotnet/cli/rel/1.0.0/scripts/obtain/dotnet-install.sh | bash /dev/stdin --version 1.0.0-preview1-002702 --install-dir ~/dotnet
          Ah, the good old download random script from the Internet and pipe directly into your shell method...

              Open source 'dotnet' would be great for 'wine' games. But 'winemono' is a failure.

                In case anyone is interested, here is the direct download URL for Ubuntu 14.04 amd64
                https://dotnetcli.blob.core.windows....-002702.tar.gz
                Things are dynamically linked, so won't run on other distros unless you have the same versions of openssl, curl, icu and some other libraries.
