Linux The first snapshot release of Komodo, a next-generation Linux/.NET-based operating system, is now available. "A new desktop environment codenamed Dagon is now being developed with [D-Bus, Composite, Linux 2.6] to bring a new face of Linux to users. The environment is being developed around the Emotion graphics/UI toolkit to best make use of these new display and communication technologies as well as to provide a solid and useable interface for casual users." Get the latest snapshots from their FTP servers. Read more information for developers, users and enterprise users.

Wrong. System.Windows.Forms and GTK# are supported just fine. Komodo includes GTK and QT (not the download available now, because I didn't want to beef it up unnecessarily) as well as bindings for both (weell really QT is an ongoing concern).

I don't run Windows Vista because I HATE Microsoft. My using .NET does not mean I in any way identify with Microsoft. They just made a good cross-platform environment, made it available via standards (ECMA) and have been very accepting about it. The least we can do is encourage Microsoft to do this stuff more often by allowing the applications written for Komodo to work on Vista (via Emotion's Windows backend, which, is like 10% coded right now but whatever).
