First, Manjaro developers you have done an amazing job!! Well done.
I am dumping windows7 for Manjaro. I have been very impressed with Manjaro, it runs faster than Ubuntu, or Windows7 on my computer. And with the help of the handy > Terminal-Htop looks like the OS is running at about 3/4 the ram requirements of Win7 on this computer. The Xfce interface is clean, effecive, and professional.
As a new to Linux person I would like to start doing software development, I have been programming for 18 years on Windows, and have used C# and the MS .Net IDE exclusively for about a decade now. I looked at Mono, Glade, and Builder and if someone knows of a particular IDE that works well with Manjaro for an unemployeed budget I am open to suggestions, as learning a new IDE is all the same at this point.
Also I noticed that the GTK way of programming GUI applications is very different than MS Windows. Can anyone recommend some good tutorials on building GTK GUI applications? additionally I have some graphics-apps that I was working on in Windows7 that I would like to eventually port but I would need to find additional tutorials on how to add Cario and OpenGL to GTK apps.
