I know someone who wants to have ago of my game but the head case has a mac! [sorry mac’ers]
I read another post saying he needs the linux/mono?

I know very little about Mac OS. What the hell is mono?
So is he going to have to fart around trying to get this running or is it straight forward?

Thank you brother/sister drifters!

Mono is a Unix implementation of the .net / CLR libraries. (That is, it lets you run C# programs in a Unix environment.)

I've never used Mono, so I'm not sure how difficult it'll be for him to run, though.
