General Development "In the last five years, LLVM has evolved from an academic project to the universal back-end of C, C++, and Objective C compilers. The key to its success is its performance and adaptability, both of which derive from its unique design and implementation."

Mono uses LLVM as an alternative for its own JIT compiler. It doesn't generate native code.

As for Apple and encouraging C#/VB devs to code for Os X/ iOS, the problem is that .NET devs invested too much time in learning MS specific apis like winforms and WPF which Apple can't legally implement. They can implement C# bindings to Apple specific apis however.
