pnet is going to be easier to bootstrap than mono because of mono's compiler being written in c# itself. pnet will compile faster because it's written in c instead of c#. pnet also probably runs on more platforms as of now. pnet has a windows implemention of Windows Forms that could probably work on mono with some tweaking - I've never tried.

mono has more of the class libraries fleshed out than pnet and also has a fairly mature JIT.

It's a bit of a shame that there hasn't been more cooperation between the two groups, but hey, that's the way the ball bounces in the open source world.
