Recently, in my research, I came across using Visual Studio & mono to try out some GUI's...man it was quick and easy. The graphics seemed pretty good (almost PC quality) & there were lots of options in the PC development environment to make all kinds of adjustment to each graphics object..
To my surprise, I barely see ANY mention of using Visual studio/mono in the rpi graphics arena...any reason for this lack of use? Until the other day I'd never even heard of using this & I've been developing quite a list of graphics tool. There's always one more rock to turn over.
Using Mono--Any problems? It makes me feel like I'm overlooking something--like everyone ran away from it. I wouldn't want to get way into a project to controlling motors and heaters & find that there is a major flaw with using mono & that I've wasted mega time. I've only seen very slight differences between what was drawn on the PC side & what appeared on the rpi screen (mono ver 22.214.171.124).
I also discovered something called monodevelop, but haven't had a chance to see what it is about.
