    Hi,

    We purchased a large software package that uses Microsoft’s .NET Framework heavily.

    The customer who needs to interface with the software uses an Apple with OS 10.3.8 currently installed.

    I read back in 2002 at MWUK that .NET may be coming to OSX.

    I also read that a Java Solution may be in the works.

    Would anyone know if OSX supports the .NET Framework?

    Thanks!

    big negative on that one. .NET is microsoft only...

    you can get Mono for OS X.. if it supports all the stuff needed in the package you are going to use then it may work.. but you'd have to try it out or do a lot of research first..

    Microsoft .NET is a proprietary Microsoft-only thing. Anyone using anything other than Windows is stuck. That includes Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X users.

    not totally... mono implements a lot of .NET... i'm not sure if it requires a recompile or if it will run without a recompile.. their page probably answers that question... Mono is available on linux, bsd, os x, windows, etc etc...
