Mono Project This article provides a tour through some Mono programs, along with details about how you can start experimenting with them yourself. Not all of the programs featured here are finished products, but they're all exciting and show off interesting aspects of Mono. Even more Mono applications can be found at We should add to the list the excellent PolarViewer and SportTracker (they go together), and of course, GCursor#, CSBoardGalaxium Messenger, SkyNET and GLyrics among others like Bless, fewnn, GFax, WoodPusher, CDCollect and Kurush.

Re: Does Java...

> actually use native widgets or just swing that is designed to look native?
You can do both, same as with mono.

Correction - Java can use it's own Swing toolkit, or it can use third-party toolkits like SWT that wrap native toolkits, or it can use third-party bindings for native toolkits.

Mono has no internal toolkit corresponding to Swing, though the Gtk# bindings are pretty much a standard since they're developed by the Mono team. There are also Qt# bindings, and on Windows, the standard .NET SWF.
