hi

mono is a dotnet platform which is platform idependent. but lacks alot of features that are found in the ms vs.net. the team is trying to make available all of the features of .net1.1 and .net 2.0 but still have alot of things pending and under development. that is not that much a big problem but the bigger problem is that it lacks a visual ide. it has an ide but that lacks the power of visual editor. they are still trying to implement it . Any way nice work, great work and alot of hardwork. thanx to the mono project.
give it a try.

thanx alot

There are points to that. As of its current status, mono is not ready for running any production quality .NET application.

It is still far from being complete .NET 1.1 compliant, .NET 2.0 is an even more longer way.
Problems I have faced with Mono are that most of the .NET applications that are currently being used and developed still rely somehow on ActiveX/COM technology that will probably never be available outside Windows platform.
Also the ADO.NET database components implemented in mono that are part of base .NET 1.0 specification are incomplete and marked inactive by Mono developers.

These things keep current applications from running.
Also Mono provides alternate set of classes that are tied to GNOME/GTK+.
However, I still see Mono as a huge improvement when compared to Wine.
More will follow :)
