[Mono-dev] Is mono ready for backend deployment?

Hi Gelin,

I think mono is doing a good job, especially for backend uses. LISTEQ 
uses it to host their BoXedVDI Cloud Desktop software (www.listeq.com) - 
where the mono/.net application handles all the network I/O, video 
compression and encryption. I also use mono for much of the 
globaltuners.com infrastructure, including audio streaming, DSP and 
HTTPS proxying. Both systems can easily run for weeks, probably much 
longer if it weren't for software updates, without crashing.

We were recently affected by a possible (regression) bug in mono which 
caused crashes while running external processes under some 
circumstances, but this seems to have improved. You may have to be 
careful with updates, but overall it works well and can run reliably for 
a long time.
