Mono is a cross platform, open source .NET development framework.

The Mono Project aims to make developers productive and happy: Mono 2.4 is our gift to the world. Sponsored by Novell, the Mono open source project has an active and enthusiastic contributing community and is positioned to become the leading choice for development of Linux applications.

Mono has support for both 32 and 64 bit systems on a number of architectures as well as a number of operating systems.

Supported Operating Systems

Operating Systems

    * Linux
    * Mac OS X, iPhone OS
    * Sun Solaris
    * BSD - OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD
    * Microsoft Windows
    * Nintendo Wii
    * Sony PlayStation 3

Supported Architectures

Mono has both an optimizing just-in-time (JIT) runtime and a interpreter runtime. The interpreter runtime is far less complex and is primarily used in the early stages before a JIT version for that architecture is constructed. The interpreter is not supported on architectures where the JIT has been ported.

Supported Architectures               Runtime            Operating system
s390, s390x (32 and 64 bits)            JIT            Linux
SPARC (32)                                   JIT             Solaris, Linux
PowerPC                                       JIT       Linux, Mac OSX, Wii, PlayStation 3
x86                                               JIT       Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Microsoft Windows, Solaris, OS X
x86-64: AMD64 and EM64T (64 bit)    JIT       Linux, Solaris
IA64 Itanium2 (64 bit)                   JIT         Linux
ARM: little and big endian               JIT         Linux (both old and new ABI), iPhone
Alpha                                           JIT          Linux
MIPS                                            JIT       Linux
HPPA                                            JIT       Linux

Note that the Alpha, MIPS, ARM big-endian and HPPA architectures are community-supported and may not be as complete as the other architectures.

Support for SPARC64 works in older versions of Mono, but not in the recent versions.

Packages for most platforms are available from the Downloads page.
