Hi folks.

I have just started a post-grad course in which I will be building up some computer skills. Among them is a module called "Object Oriented Programming".
I know we will be taught C# as part of the subject, that will probably be the language of choice.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on an old lap top, I don't have any windows machine.

So I read around and found out about Mono.
I'm pretty sure this is a simple (or dumb) question but......If I just install the Mono C# compiler I should be able to do simple programming on my home machine, shouldn't I?

Thanks in advance, I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but I'm obviously new to this stuff.

Yes. I'd recommend installing monodevelop, which is an IDE for C# development (amongst others)

I'd recommend installing mono and monodevelop from the badger-ports ppa, as the versions of monodevelop and mono available in the default 10.04 repositories are rather old.
