    I'd recommend learning anything not sponsored or owned by Microsoft, but that's just me.

    Hello thr.
    I don't know anything significant about either but I'd consider this. The .net is huge, and a moving target. They're on version 3 now. I don't know anything about the mono project, but I suppose it will always be playing catch up. Features might be missing and bugs might be present. You may be exposing yourself to needless frustration by trying to write .net on a linux platform.

    I do know this. C++ in .net is ugly. Basically, the memory managed idea was crow-barred into the language. It's not real C++ anymore. If I wanted to program .net, I'd pick C# because I think that's the language created from scratch for .net. My second choice would be VB.

    I'd investigate qt. From what little I know, its object oriented and portable and would be a good match for C++.

    Personally, I don't think its a religion. I have no problems with open source. I have no problems with Microsoft.

    It would be good to hear from people with actual experience.

    wxWidgets is really cool. It's also more than a GUI library - it offers files, streams and many utilities which can become useful.

    I would love to use whatever OS I'd like, but the plain and simple truth is that Microsoft has such a death grip that most of the most popular products don't offer a cross platform solution. If I could get my games to work well in Linux, I'd be there in a heart beat. Based on Microsoft starting to develop for Linux and creating Linux based devices, I don't think I'll have to wait more than ... um ... 10 years to do this though. I wish they could move to unix as fast as Apple did though.

    >> Microsoft Hatred is a Disease: Linus Torvalds

    Well, I don't personally subscribe to that, but I can certainly see why one would. Some of their business strategies *are* a little extreme, and they do have issues with sticking with standards and whatnot. That said, at least they have charming executives. You won't find people of that caliber at some Linux operation - that's for sure.
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    They have no reason for that, except if they want to improve their servers or design Windows 7 with terminals. I like Linux/Unix, but I don't think Microsoft does.
