Yes, I have 3 clients running Mono on ARM CPUs. The first is a 190MHz
board EP9302 CPU (fairly slow ARM) and has has a 14,000 SLOC C# app
running, and does well. In the second application we ran a small mono
app for about a year in production, then switched to Vala to get
better startup time. The 3rd application is still in evaluation on a
PXA270 CPU, but reports from the customer indicate things are running
fairly well, and they are trying difficult/large test cases, etc.
There have been a few minor issues, but overall, it is a great
solution. We've been very pleased.
There are Mono recipes in OpenEmbedded that build Mono for ARM
