I am about to architect a web service using .NET Framework and am told that they can be consumed by clients running Linux.  But that this wold require them to use Mono.

How big a deal is getting someone who's made a significant investment in a Linux point of sale to also run Mono?  Is it a new development environment that would require them to switch over?  (that aint gonna happen)  Or is it a separate program they can run on Linux that won't interfere with their significant investment to date in hardware and software development?

What is the preferred method, for Linux users, when consuming a web service?  Is it a pain in the neck to be forced to use mono.  Or is any system worth its salt already doing it?
