I have a Mono presentation geared towards Windows developers.  Some
other things I explain:

* Background:  shows that Mono just isn't some flash in the pan.
* Current commercial use of Mono:  shows that it is being used in the
real world.
* Roadmap:  what is coming in Mono, Olive, WinForms2, etc.
* Licensing:  explain the GPL/LGPL, and MIT licences (pointing out that IANAL)
* Tools:  MonoDevelop, SharpDevelop, MS Visual Studio
* A demo of the .NET PetShop ported to Mono and MySQL.  I compile it
under Windows, xcopy deploy to a Linux  box (VMWare image), and then
run the application under Linux.  Sometimes I do it backwards too.
