    As an exercise, last weekend I installed MonoDevelop, Visual Studio Code and ASP.Net on my Debian Linux PC.
    I added the repositories to get the fresh releases of these projects instead of downloading one-off install packages, they seem to be stable releases and manage dependencies well.

    Getting a running C# app and a ASP.Net site was surprisingly easy (apart from getting the web site configured under Apache).

    I looked briefly at the Xamarin tools but haven't installed them yet on Linux. That may be an exercise for next weekend : )
