The trend of application development has changed over the last decade. Previously, computer programs were developed only for certain platforms. The developer had to create a different code for the application to work on another hardware platform. In the present day, application developers tend to build cross-platform apps that can be quickly deployed across different operating systems and hardware architecture.
This tool profits greatly from the popularity of the .NET Framework so that for any hindrance, developers can find a lot of materials to offer solutions. The application has many classes grouped in two distinct Class Libraries which are useful for developers to build applications with relative ease. Mono adds its own classes, besides those inherited from Microsoft, such as Gtk+, OpenGL, LDAP, Cairo, POSIX, and others.
This enhances working with advanced Microsoft features and creation on Linux-based applications. What more? The user has the advantage of running various form of Windows Forms, Silverlight, ADO.NET or ASP.NET applications, without the need to recompile them. It supports various types of binding and puts into action numerous protocols and libraries. If you are a cross-platform developer, this application is for you.
Mono for Windows is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in debuggers / decompilers category and is available to all software users as a free download.
