Thanks Abe!

We ran some tests on linux yesterday and things worked perfectly!

This is great news, thanks for the links. We only have 1 casing issue and
fixed it.

Thanks again..

Sure.  Need a consultant to help? ;)

While MVC is officially fully supported on Mono, you will more than
likely run into some Windows-to-Linux issues.  Often these things boil
down to file path casing issues (Linux being case sensitive, Windows
not).  To address casing issues you can put Mono in IO compatibility
mode.  But for production-level sites you'll want to eventually remove
the problems from your codebase and avoid IO compatibility mode.

Windows-to-Linux migration also assumes your app is written entirely
in managed code.  If you're calling COM objects or P/Invoking into a
Windows APIs, then you'll have to find managed alternatives for these

The last possible source of cross-platform issues is missing
functionality in Mono.  This is probably the least likely because Mono
implements a ghastly amount of the .Net Framework, and furthermore,
ASP.NET is very complete.  I've personally never run into missing
functionality in Mono.  But you'll want to run the MoMA tool just to
be sure.  http://www.mono-project.com/MoMA
