Language is your choice: we are working on both compilers, and supporting 
runtime libraries.

Just avoid any Win32 API calls, be carefull with third party Win Forms 
Controls and/or Libraries that don´t say they are Mono Compatible, and track 
development of substitutes for bigger roadblocks like COM+ interop, MSMQ, 
ADSI (namely System.EnterpriseServices, System.Messaging, etc...)
