Porting .NET apps to mono...

Is not nearly as easy as some to think it is. Part of the problem is that mono always lags at least one full version behind the official .NET implementation from Microsoft. Furthermore, there are features of the official .NET implementation (particularly when it comes to GUI stuff) that are not supported in mono, and probably never will be.

Porting .NET apps to mono can be extremely frustrating and often requires major portions of code to be rewritten.
