Yes, Everything is developed in Windows & VS2008 and works. Problem is 
testing everything and then fixing all the issues found in Mono/Linux. I'm 
trying to get a whole suite of win forms components working in Mono and 
running in Linux OS. Took forever just to get OpenSUSE installed. Don't see 
any point to install VMWare when I already have need Virtual PC 2007. They 
should make in work in VPC, windows seems to work fine there...

This whole process a major pain, which is probably why companies don't 

I can't find a install for Mono 2.4 for (openSUSE), any link would be

Better if you use VirtualBox (http://virtualbox.org/) Linux works
great on it. But for WinForms 'development' I would use Windows and
VisualStudio and then I would test the result in Linux. The WinForms
designer in VisualStudio is really solid and has tons of features.
There is not a released WinForms designer for mono (as far as I know).
