Re: [vox-tech] Re: [vox-if] [rsvp-May15] Mandrake 9.2 + WinXP; trying to install Fedora Core on Virtual PC

Mark hit it on the head (except Mono is an Open Source implementation of .NET,
it runs on windows as well).  My logic is: (C & C++):(gcc)::(C# and
VB.NET):(Mono).  C# isn't a traditional compiled "language" (M$ calls it part
of the .NET 'framework'), parts of it are interpreted.

I don't think that Mono is included with Redhat/Fedora.  You need to D/L it
from their site, but they have source/RPM/DEB/windows .MSI, so it's fairly

He also wants to get it running in a VM on WinXP (I use VMware daily, but never
Virtual PC)...  

I am nominally interested in Mono and .NET, is there anyone else sick in the
head like me?  

The next question is since he is a fair hike away from davis, are we going to
make him drive all the way out for an IF, or can we/should we try to help him
via the list/IM/something else?  I'll be at the IF...
