Yes, it is. You might need to have a custom (and don't use .Net for that if
you aren't sure that it's installed on the target) launch application which
invokes mono.exe yourbinary. The most simple case would be a .sh/.bat/.cmd
file, but that might be ugly for several cosmetic reasons. I'm deploying a
shrinked/stripped down version of mono to build (nant) and run an
application of mine. Works fine for me.
