C# – Using visual studio for developing mono applications

How do I use Visual Studio to develop applications on Mono? Is this possible?

Best Solution

You just build the applications in Visual Studio, and run them under Mono instead of under .NET. The binaries should be compatible... but you'll need to make sure you don't use any libraries which aren't available in Mono - see the Mono Application Compatibility Guidelines.

(According to that page, you need to turn off incremental builds in Visual Studio though - a point I wasn't aware of before :)
