- Developers would use Mono on Windows to test their app, for example, or
because they need Mono-specific features (like Mono.Simd). Also, some
commercial apps, like Unity, run on Windows using Mono.
- There are few different Windows versions, while there are loads of
different Linux distros.
- Most Windows users aren't likely to bother compiling their app, while
Linux is all about struggling to get your stuff working ;). Not to mention
that compiling Mono on Windows is a pain.
- It's up to the Linux distro maintainers to take care of packaging apps.
- Ubuntu is not about cutting edge, it's often a bit behind in terms of
software versions. That said, the latest Ubuntu ships with Mono 126.96.36.199,
which isn't too old, so they're not too far behind this time.
