Telerik ports .NET controls to Linux

Filed under
Software

Telerik has partnered with Novell to certify that its RadControls ASP.NET AJAX component suite supports the open-source Mono runtime environment, permitting developers to build .NET applications in a Linux environment.

RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2009, released in March, is certified to work with Mono 2.4, an implementation of the Common Language Infrastructure, which Microsoft's .NET Framework is based upon.

"Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX run without error on the Mono platform," said Todd Anglin, Telerik's chief technical evangelist. "We've always wanted to enable developers to have the ultimate flexibility to run their applications wherever their environment or client requires, and by supporting Mono, Telerik enables developers to build applications using the RadControls that can run on Windows or Linux."

RMS on Mono

"[...] we know that Microsoft is getting patents on some features of C#. So I think it's dangerous to use C#, and it may be dangerous to use Mono."

Librem Linux Laptop Drops NVIDIA Graphics But Still Coming Up Short Of Goal

One of the oddest things I found about the crowd-funded Librem 15 laptop when writing about it last month was that it wanted to be open-source down to the component firmware/microcode yet they opted to ship with a NVIDIA GPU. In an updated earlier this month, at least they came to their senses and dropped the discrete NVIDIA GPU. While I have no problems recommending NVIDIA graphics for Linux gamers and those wanting the best performance, that's only when using the proprietary drivers, and certainly wouldn't recommend it for a fully open-source system -- NVIDIA on the desktop side doesn't do much for the open-source drivers, let alone down to the firmware/microcode level. Instead the Librem folks have opted to upgrade the design to using an Intel Core i7 4770HQ processor that features more powerful Intel Iris Pro 5200 Graphics, which isn't as powerful as a discrete NVIDIA GPU but at least is more open-source friendly.
