    Windows 8 Development in Linux

    I googled but I couldn't find anything useful so does anyone know if I can write/compile/run everything I need for a Windows 8 application but stay in the beauty that is Linux while doing so? I don't mind using Wine but I would prefer to use native tools.

    I am planning on learning C# and using that to make Metro applications. Does (or will) Mono support Metro application development with C# all through Linux using Monodevelop or a similar tool?

    Sorry for my ignorance.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    absolutely... the simplest way is just to code in the terminal and use gcc to test / compile your code more info below

    as far as an actual programs go I believe "eclipse" will do what you need. I have only used eclipse for java, but they have other libraries for other languages and all in all its a very nice piece of software.

    Thanks for your answer but, I said C# not C++.

    No.

    Mono will not support Metro.

    Even if it is metro apps using HTML5 when we have visual studio it will be great right.
    Any suggestion on this.
