What can you do with Mono ?


I know Mono is the equivalent of .asp but really do not understand it.   People have said they are going to change the licenseing of Java due to the introduction of Mono and that Mono was taking over much of java's duties in Cross Platform.  

Now with this being said, What did I say ?  

Can I write / run php under mono ?  Is it server side java or client side java?    Is Mono hard to do ?  Is it in the default install of major commercial Linuxes ( and fedora ?  :)

Mono is essentially an open source, cross platform implementation of Microsoft's .Net 'standard'.
You can create standalone applications (like with C++ or Visual Basic), you can create network connected applications, you can create server side web apps (like php or asp) etc.
Novell's newer distro versions come with a Mono implementation and development environment and that might be a good way to get started developing with Mono.
