Thanks Onur,
I'm not sure what are the basic components needed to run the application but 
from my sources, the application I rebuild in MonoDevelop was created with 
C#2.0 and VS2005. I'm not sure what Winform is and if it's used but the 
application does have buttons (if that's what the winform does). As for ASP 
that's not used as far as I can tell.
Could I assume that a comparison chart of .NET and Mono is pointless because 
of the various components? What would be the best comparison method to 
compare the two? Or what would be the determining how usable a particular 
version of mono is? Is it the version of C# supported?  My all means correct 
me if I'm wrong or off-track because I'm not sure how Mono fits together. 

Much thanks.
