In Linux:

The best approach to deal with it in Linux is to create shell script
wrappers like those that exist for mcs/mbas/etc. in mono. These are
clickable to run.

Another way is to use binfmt kernel support to map .exe files to be
executed with mono (will render wine useless, unless someone has coded a
smarter selector that see if it is a managed exe or not and calls wine
or mono as needed).

In Windows:

With .NET runtime, they are fully clickable, but should be compiled as
winexe not to open a console window. 

If you have only mono installed in windows, you need to do .bat
wrappers, as we don't implement a native mscoree.dll or something
similar to start mono automatically for managed exes.
