No it is not 100% compatible, but it is very close.  Some features  
the Mono team have chosen not to support due to portability reasons.   
Someone could answer this better than I, but it is my understanding  
that these features will not be supported.  Also, make sure you  
aren't using windows conventions like '\' for Directory Paths and  
things like that.  Review the mono-project.com website.  There are  
portability guidelines and much more information than could fit an in  
email.  You should go through all this information anyway if you plan  
on using mono.

That said, I mostly use Mono on Mac OS X, but have run it on Linux as  
well.  I have never had a compatibility issue or a bug with running  
non-UI code in Mono (at least not with recent releases), as long as I  
program with portability in mind.  I have had some issues with  
WinForms though and other UI solutions..
