Good for mono developers.
but i am afraid Mono usage in server side is nearly zero. My belief is, .Net is (has been and most likely will be) an MS-Windows thing. Mono may be fine for some gnome desktop applications but thats it. Sure mono will be used and fed by MS as "hey look we are multi platform" to the end. but thats another story..

I think you'd be surprised how many sites actually use Mono on the server. Just because you don't see it, doesn't mean they aren't there ;-)
