SkyOS Mono 1.1.13 has been ported to SkyOS. All mono assemblies for .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 have been ported as well. Porting Managed.Windows.Forms has begun and is almost finished. SkyOS's lead developer, Robert Szeleney, was responsible for this difficult port. He has written an account of that process. "Porting Mono was not an easy task at all."

It doesn't bring features, it brings software, and developers.

Think Java... what's it good for? what features does it bring?

And, if you read the account of the implementation - you'll see that this "challenge" of porting mono has improved SkyOS' POSIX implementation and eliminated various memory leaks, etc. in the kernel mmap implementation.
