So I'm thinking of learning XML, ASP.NET, VC# . So in Linux what all can you do with them ?

I especially wanna know whether you can make apps/scripts like weather forecasts?

And if u have learned any of them please share your views/experience on them :)

C# is great for making desktop applications, and ASP.Net is great for making websites and web applications (using C#) on the backend. So, you could definitely make a weather application (but why, there are tons out there?). XML by itself does not do much, but can be quite useful for storing application config in, among many other things.

Download MonoDevelop (IDE for C#/ASP.Net) and start playing around!

I agree with BrokenKingpin, grab MonoDevelop which is the best way to take advantage of C# and ASP.Net under Linux.

Personally I work in a Microsoft office where everything is in C#, but given my home life is centered around Linux I really want to merge the two... and Mono is the best way. I've yet to write any in-depth projects, but I'm drafting a few that hopefully will take off.

There's also MonoTouch and Mono for Android which are Mono ports to iOS and Android.
