I am learning to program in Visual Basic .NET at school, and am using Visual Studio Express.
My teacher said that I can download Mono to practise programming at home, and as my exam is soon, I want to start practising.
I have read that it comes installed by default in some versions of Ubuntu. I'm currently using 13.04. I don't think it is installed already though.
What do I need to do to get mono? Would a sudo apt-get install mono-runtime do the job? Is there anything else I would need to do?
