Newbe question about fez hydra and programming it

Hi guys, i’ve got a new fez hydra just yesterday. I would like to program it using linux and opensource software. There’s a way?
Also there is a good tutorial anywhere on the net to starting on?

Thanks

downloads and tutorials on the top of this page

Welcome to the forum!

Rajesh put an excellent tutorial on how to build and run Linux on Hydra:

No i wouldn’t put on it linux, i would like to create software using linux as OS and so all my programs on it (gcc/emacs/g++/mono).

There’s a way?

You must program for .NET Micro Framework using Visual Studio. If you don’t have a Windows machine, consider running a virtual machine under linux.

Note: I don’t know if anyone has tested Hydra or Spider using a virtual machine under linux.

There were attempts to port MF Mono way, but I dont know the current state of it. Search the web.
