Most of the apps I have wanted to run use .net for some parts of the app 
but the main part still was hooking directly to the windows api so they 
will never work with Mono.  I have a feeling Wine will be the only hope 
for apps like in the future.

I hope this is not true but I have a feeling that in another 2 years 
wine might not be so useful for newer apps if .net does not run on it. 
Mono will only go so far...  There are too many developers currently 
bypassing .net in parts of their code and hooking directly to windows 
only DLLs or APIs.
