Once it works better. Right now it's really not ready to use.
(And mono doesn't yet have a silent install mode, which would be nice.)
If you want to try it out, easiest way is to do
sh winetricks mono12
Winetricks will then download mono, install it, and set the registry keys
needed to make Wine use it.
You can then try running simple .net apps, e.g. a trivial tile game
It uses gdiplus, so I think you have to install that first. I tried
sh winetricks gdiplus corefonts
but it doesn't run... it dies deep within
which doesn't seem like a good sign :-(
Same problem with another trivial game,
Beyond those problems, there must be some other registry key we need to set.
Installing e.g. http://www.dbautotrack.com/products/richtexteditor.html
fails saying "This setup requires the .NET Framework. Please install
the .NET Framework and run this setup again."
