    I wanted to give it to the attention that comparing to the Windows package, the one for Linux (Mono) is incomplete and many things, including the essential programs, like for example the Administrator, Configurator and Scheme editor are missing, with makes the package almost unusable.

    I know that there are such ones in the sources, but Linux users won’t be able to compile Microsoft Visual Studio projects and files

    Definitely. The cause is that GUI applications do not work on Linux. As I wrote on GitHub, it is possible to make them work with Mono, but it requires a research.

    The current approach is creating a configuration using Windows then upload it on Linux machine. If there is no access to Windows, the existing apps should be ported to Linux or web.

    I think it’s more generic to port existing desktop apps to Linux because new modules are created regularly, so creating GUI and web version for every new module requires more LoE. Development of a web form usually takes more time than similar desktop form.
    The idea is allowing new forms works well on Windows and Linux without additional efforts. But is this possible or not requires verification.
