Information and experience about Mono project


Our team develops some new software with the ASP.Net program language.
Atm, we use Ubuntu on our server and don’t like to virtualize a windows server or rent another server machine/virtual pc.
We need some information (mainly experience) about Mono Project.

For example:
• how stable it is
• Is there any problem with it
• Is it compatible with ubuntu (for example version)

You'll probably want to focus on the ASP.NET specifics. The page claims to have an implementation of MVC (if that's what your after), but I don't see what version(s) it supports.

I installed Mono (not the ASP.NET components) on Ubuntu some while back. MonoDevelop (the Mono IDE) is not quite at the level that Visual Studio is, but it is very respectable (IMO). AFAIK, C# is the only supported .NET language. In my testing, projects (Forms and Console) worked just as smoothly as they do in Windows, though the GUIs are a bit bland.

I cannot comment as to the efficiency of using Mono in an enterprise scenario, unfortunately.

It appears to be only for C#.  Other people have said it is not complete.  If you're writing for Windows, you should do this on a Windows machine with Visual Studio so everything runs correctly.
