Mono is primary for Linux. As I know it is used on Windows only by
developers to ensure chross-runtime compatibility and exists on Windows to
test the portability of the runtime.

I you want to implemet something that is not based on DirectX it will result
in worse performance than a layer that is hardware based like DirectX.

There are some hardware based (I think proprietary, but there may be open
source as well) DirectX API implementations for Linux that can be used as
the base of your work to provide better performance.

If there is a need for DirectX compatible managed interface on Linux this
work can be useful.
