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

I didn't want to change the topic so I started a new thread but, I know from recent experiance that Reading Counts, Scholastic Reading Inventory and Management Suite won't work with Wine or Crossover. 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 office suite software. Yea central management!

You should check out the latest Codeweavers Crossover office. I bought
this for school a couple years ago and works pretty well.
Also on k12ltsp v 5.0 or newer the wine rpm's that default with these work
very well nowadays as well.
What windows apps are you wanting to run via Linux?
The key to running windows apps with wine,, if you are wanting to have all
users access is to make a "wine" directory then copy all the install
wine/windows apps to this directory,,,then make a launcher as root then
push to desktop for all users( if this is what you are wanting)..
I've never tried Win4lin.. so cnt say about this one

Let us know
