I just got hold of my first Raspberry PI Rev 2 yesterday (512 MB) + a 32 GB SD card.
Connected LAN, USB mouse+keyboard and downloaded Raspbian "Wheezy"and extracted it. Everything worked and looked smooth.
As a software developer with C/C++/C# experience in my bag, I havent spend much time with Linux so consider me a complete newbie on that matter.
I will try to follow this one, once I figure out where to write the console commands...
I would like to use GUI for my MONO applications and I will develop them on my Windows 7 machine. using either MonoDeveloper or VisualStudio 2010 (I like the IDE better for general coding).
If it matters, I dont need "the rest" of the OS, like browsers, programs etc. My programs will go fullscreen and "take over" the OS so the user dont need access to desktop.
I will only need LAN, SOUND and USB though for input and output.
My question for this is therefore:
IS Raspbian the distro to use for eg. MONO 2.0 and MONO 3.5? (I am fully aware that 4.0 isnt ready) or should I look for another distribution?
