It's for running System.ServiceProcess based services on Linux (and maybe other
UNIX like OS). The implementation of ServiceBase should be complete. Not many
people seem to be using it. So I would rather not call it stable. But
maybe it is ;-)

The only known problem is a crash when stopping services on kernel 2.4
based systems.

Not yet. But theres something in the works. There was a longer thread some weeks
ago: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnome.mono.general/24402
