The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Since the end of Sharp Develop I have been looking for a replacement. Visual Studio is out of the question. Not for free and not even if they actually wanted to pay me money to use it. Linux and Mono look far more attractive to me now. Has anyone ported half a ton of existing code to Mono? Was it easy or problematic? If this does not work out, then I will have little choice but to throw everything away and go home to C++. Better a bitter end than bitterness without an end.

It's not bad. Got a good collection of add-ons etc. Cross platform.
It's not a full blown IDE but enough of what's really needed is there.
I have briefly played with mono, it's not bad but some frustrating bugs and things still missing/kludgy/wysiwy-maybe-sometimes-sortof-g. [even though years old] feels like a beta package that needs a lot of work that probably won't happen for a very long time if ever.
(yes vscode also misses a lot compared to vs, but it never promised to be a full IDE.)
I am currently doing a project where I am developing a project using Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition. The code is written and tested on a PC in VB.Net and ultimately needs to run on a Raspberry PI 3B with the latest version of Raspbian.
So far everything goes well: all of the stuff I have written: some TCP stuff, graphics etc... does work well, both on the PC and the PI.
Using mono to simply run the Generated Exe file and the associated DDL's on the Raspberry PI works smoothly, no problems until now.
Why not .NET to .NET Core/Standard?
They work on all platforms, but they're still owned by Microsoft and will be the future of .NET[^].
You can edit with Visual Studio Code on all platforms too.
I haven't ported any .NET Framework to Core/Standard myself, but since they're both Microsoft I can imagine it's less painful than porting to Mono.
Why not Visual Studio on Windows though?
The Community edition is free (for small teams and businesses) and has the same capabilities as VS Professional.
That sounds like it would be a painless transition and you wouldn't have to throw everything away...
You are right, it should be "they are" - but "he" is a generic term on the internet which includes both sexes, since you have no idea what the gender or sexual orientation of the other person might be.
Remember "The internet: where men are men, women are men, and fifteen year old girls are FBI agents".

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
Well not sure it counts as the internet but after a quick round of Google it does seem to still be the case although people are still trying to challenge and change it, first to 'he or she' and more recently to 'they' to be more inclusive.
