RE: [K12OSN] Which .NET for Linux - Windows Apps in Linux



Then I still shouldn't have an issue with them using it, aside from the "RLI print plugin" right? Using Scholastic Software meant we were going to need Microsoft Terminal Services and at that point the other tech just said then why do we need Linux at all? So I'm trying this route both to create some consistency between schools, and ease the load on us. Have you used Renaissance Place on a Linux Client before?

I believe .NET is just for the server Renaissance Place. The client 
requires something called "RLI print plugin" I doubt it has a linux 
version, but I could be wrong.  I'd personally avoid anything that 
required .NET on the client.

Educational apps should be built on open standards. What's wrong with 
LAMP or J2EE backends with a web/AJAX front-end?

We went with RDesktop for those, and then Seamless RDP as well. It was working nice, then I did some research on the software itself and discovered Renaissance Place. It's a web version of Accelerated Reader, all you need is Java, Flash, and .Net. My question is which .NET would any of you reccomend? DOTGNU or MONO, I don't see a difference. I'm really happy I convinced the new librarian to switch to this next year, now I need to make it work. All three schools will be using one app (finally), which means one server for me, and multiplatform use. Going to be a long summer, the reading app will need a web server, the library app is becoming a web app, and the student information is becoming a web app. Seems like the only thing students and teachers will run local might be offic
 e suite software. Yea central management!
