Although to the newcomer, these processes can feel a little daunting, it only takes one or two repeat performances before the principles stay with you. For continued development using these tools, familiarity is essential, because the open source community frequently releases new versions. NET packages, you have the option to build the packages in a variety of different configurations by calling the configure script with various switches. The most important switch is the --with- profile=profilename profile switch.

The mono runtime uses ]IT compilation to convert IL to native code and provides maximum performance, while the mint runtime uses interpretation to provide maximum platform portability at the cost of performance. Compilation in mono Native Code Interpretation in mint Native Code Figure 1-7. The Mono compilation chain Although mono outperforms mint, because mono contains a significant portion of platform-dependent code, mono is only available for a subset of the architectures that are supported by mint, as shown in Table 1-1.

A slightly more expensive alternative to dual booting is to use virtual machine or emulation software to run a variety of guest operating systems on a host operating system. Not only does this allow concurrent testing, but it also potentially allows multiple hardware architectures to be tested on a single computer. The main disadvantage of using virtual machines compared to using multiple physical machines is that virtual machines cannot be used for performance testing due to the processing overhead that is incurred by the virtual machine or emulation software.
