I have several .NET programs that DO work with MONO.  The problem is
if you have to access a database in the program.  I have a program that uses
the Jet 4.0 (Access) engine to access data.  This program WILL NOT work
on my Mac, but may work on in Linux.  Since I don't have the resources to
confirm this, I will state that some .NET programs will work with MONO, but
you may have problems getting Mono to work with Wine.  I feel that
of .NET within Wine is a goal that the developers should be moving towards
or at a minimum, .NET should be installable under Wine.  Sorry, but Mono
does not and will not play well with Wine.
