Porting Mono (.net) to Iliad

Hi Guys,

Do you think it would be possible to port Mono (Linux .net implementation) to the Iliad.

I have no Linux experience so I dont know where to start, if even possible.

Kind Regards,
Tarek

Yes, this is very possible. There is already a version of mono designed to compile/run on the ARM processor and available for PDAs/Cell phones. I imagine it only provides a compact framework too, which should help out with some of the memory constraints and offloading unecessary assemblies (not sure on this though).

For more details:

One issue though I could see is that pretty much all the graphical UI stuff done in mono is done through Gtk#, which is a gnome library. I don't imagine this comes with my iLiad, and these libraries could require a fair bit of storage again.

All in all though doesn't look like it would be too much work.

I think it is time to take a crash course in Linux development and application porting.
