I don't have any slides, but here's an idea for what "mono can do that
MS.NET doesn't": Generics. :-)

OK, that's not really true -- Microsoft has released a beta for generics
support, as has Mono, but I suspect it's easier to get the mono-preview
package than the Microsoft beta...

ASP.NET and Gtk# should work.  I would advise against WinForms, unless
you make sure it works on your machine first.  It's still under
development and highly unstable.
