I don't think that's true:  JBoss (http://jboss.org) is a very mature
and very full-featured J2EE server that many people (including myself)
use in production.  It conforms to the full J2EE standard, has support
for automagical clustering, can hot-deploy across a network, etc.  There
are so many cool features to it that I'll never even touch, most likely.

In regards to a Mono app server, it seems that, if all the things that
are already being worked on are put together thoughtfully, the only
thing stading between Mono and a theoretical "Mono Application Server"
is packaging.
