Hi,
Anyone know if WPF applications .NET framework runs successfully on Mint?
I know Mono helps run .NET framework applications but i was wondering if anyone has tried it and it has worked?

Cheers
Tom

I meant to reply to this sooner, but I was busy. Anyway, as already mentioned, you could run .Net Core on Linux no bother. But its more common when someone creates an application to run on Linux; they generally do it in C++, which is what I would recommend. Here are some lists of languages that have been used to write apps on Linux : Best Programming Languages for Linux Devs

Mono doesn't implement windows presentation foundation. However, using Xamarin with Mono, you could implement a portion of C# for business logic but you would need to do the UI using GTK# or you could even use the Blink Engine to render your app using html, js, and css. Not the most ideal solution, but also not impossible. As I said, C++ would be how I would go about it, but that's just me. Currently Mono has no desires to support WPF APIs.
