Would it be possible to port this application to use Mono so that it can run nativly under Linux and Mac OS X as well?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mono_(software)http://www.mono-project.com
FYI; Mono's Common Language Runtime supports C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, and other .NET programing languages. Mono can be run on Linux, BSD, UNIX, Mac OS X, Solaris and Windows operating systems.
If so then make sure to checkout The Mono Migration Analyzer (MoMA), "Your fast track to Linux", a tool helps you identify issues you may have when porting your .Net application to Mono. It helps pinpoint platform specific calls (P/Invoke) and areas that are not yet supported by the Mono project.http://www.mono-project.com/MoMA
Also checkout the MonoDevelop IDEhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MonoDevelophttp://monodevelop.com
PS! @billyad2000, off-topic but why team up with fekker and his Movie Info Plus application (which is also VB.NET based and designed to serve the same purpose) to make it a joint single application project? If you guys would do that then please consider making that new project open source and choose a new neutral name for it (as it would probably not only be used by XBMC fans but by users of many other media center projects as well).
