Hanselminutes Podcast 168 - Successful Cross Platform .NET Development - Mono and Banshee with Aaron Bockover
My one-hundred-and-sixty-eighth podcast is up. In this one, I chat with Aaron Bockover of Novell about the Banshee Project - a cross-platform Media Player. It's a Mono Application that runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. What are the hard-won secrets of cross platform .NET dev? Aaron and his team know the answers.
I really enjoyed this show. Aaron's team has unquestionably proven that you CAN make a great .NET app that looks great everywhere. Here's Banshee on Windows, OSX, and Linux. Remember, this is written in C#, people. Click the images to see them larger.
