  • Hello,

    As Ramesh mentioned above, the third-party Mono Project has been developing an open source implementation of the ECMA standards that are part of .NET Framework, as well as most of the other non-ECMA standardized libraries in Microsoft's .NET. The Mono implementation is meant to run on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, BSD, HP-UX, and Windows platforms.

    Here are some userful tips you can refer to:

  • Microsoft .Net runs on MS Windows based platform natively.

    However  Mono , an open source implementation, allows .NET application to run on other platforms such as Linux/Unix.  But Mono does not support all .NET classes. Therefore you cannot expect anything to run completely there.
