[Mono-devel-list] Smallest mono for embedded?

Is it worth investigating mono for use in small systems?

I'm attracted to it, but wrote off Java solutions because their installation
footprint is rather large.

If I don't need any GUI support, but do need basic networking and XML (and
the web server), how small an image could I get away with?

This would be om a mini-ITX running linux or *BSD from compact flash.

Is there much of a savings to be made by discarding the JIT?

I don't believe performance is too much of an issue.  Much of what I want
for the core system will be in a native library anyway, and my application
is one that could probably run on a TINI - its just (perhaps paradoxically)
somewhat cheaper to use a mini-ITX.
