    Development with Linux


    Hi!

    I am stuck in a bit of a hard place. For the past 2 years I have been developing ASP Applications using SunOne ASP. This have been a great use of Linux and ASP because ASP is widely supported and Linux is secure.

    The problems comes as I am getting ready to learn ASP.NET. I have shy'd away from doing this for sometime but as a developer the payscale changes ALOT from asp to asp.net.

    I have looked into .NET Mono. It seems (from what I can tell) that they are extreamly limited on the support for ASP.net.

    What is a developer to do? Go to Windows? I'd rather not... Any idea's/thoughts?

    Tnx,

    i thinks thats what MS's plan is. personally i would pirate visual studio (or whatever the ms devel enviroment is) (at least the tutorials) and run them in wine. but thats not really legal.

    Option 2) send MS a request for the source code of their devel environment and try to learn soemthign from that. note: they didnt iek me when i tries this tho http://www.linuxforums.org/viewtopic.php?t=3606

    option 3) probably the msot realistic is to go out and buy a huge ass book on it for like $80

    I think I am going to try the Mono approach to getting ASP.NET to run. However, it seems that their site is down now? I have seen that a few Linux based sites have recently gone down...

    Any clues?

    It's probably a part of the demonstration against the Europan Commisions thoughts about extending software patentability. Here's a snip from the mail I recieved from the resistance group:
    Needed: Your Website Blocked Next Wednesday August 27th

    If the JURI proposal passes, important websites will be forced off the
    Net in the near future. It would seem preferable to take them off the
    Net now, as a demonstration, for a few days. Or, in a more gentle
    manner, to hide the content behind a "Page Closed" screen of the
    following kind:

    See

    Online Demonstration Against Software Patents
    http://swpat.ffii.org/group/demo/index.en.html

    Online Demo Partner Sites
    http://wiki.ael.be/index.php/OnlineDemoPartnersWebsites

    You might consider hiding some or all pages at least on August 27th
    and persuading your friends, especially those who administer
    much-visited software download pages, to do likewise.
    If there are any Europeans who still haven't done this, then hurry to sign the petition against software patentability:
    http://petition.eurolinux.org/
    If this were to come through, then the world of free software is probably just about done for it, and at least I will move out of Europe ASAP.
