    Mono - Android

    Hi
    I was thinking about writing in c# for Android, hence looked at Mono. Is Mono not
    supported anymore by Novell/Suse? It seems I cannot develop on Linux for Android in C#?
    What a pitty...
    Thanks

    the firm that now maintains mono specifically focuses on android, so you can definitely use it:

    Mono for Android is a commercial product you need to pay for.

    If you already know C#, you should be able to tranfer to Java without too much trouble. I went from Java to C# and spent the first couple of days googling:
    "What is the C# equivalent of X"


    After that everything is fine.

    Going from C# to Java is going to be more painful as C# can do everything Java can do, but the reverse is not true. The limited ability to program in languages other than Java is what keeps me off that platform.

    Well, you could install windows on virtualbox and run it from there...
