Hello Pedro

I guess it depends on the country, for example here in Mexico, .NET is
still an unknown technology, even for those developers who use MS Windows,
I guess that maybe in two years everyone will be using .NET with mono,
(about the Linux community).

I can't tell you the best distribution for running mono, I only know that
it exists in almost all the Linux/Unix versions; migrating to mono's .NET
depends on the time which you will spent learning the mono environment
(and contributing) and the user's experience with Unix/Linux. I can't tell
you the best distribution for running mono, but I can tell you that mono
works pretty good with Debian using the deb packages.

Is mono a valid .NET development environment? Yes, it is.
