The 2.0 release comes packed with new features, the main ones being the compiler upgrade to C# 3.0 with support for LINQ, as well as the inclusion of ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and System.Windows.Forms 2.0.

If Mono's purpose is to allow porting to Linux of Windows applications originally written under the .NET framework, then Mono 2.0 installed without Windows.Forms, ASP.NET or ADO.NET has no purpose.


Where the hell did you get that from? The mono project is an effort to make an open source implementation of the CLR, because it is a great platform to work on. The project always encourages Gtk# for new development, winforms is only there for the same reasons that wine exists.
