Hello and welcome to Mono. :)

You installed and ran MonoDevelop, right? It is true that MD is fairly RAM-
hungry, but this is the "fault" of MD itself, not of the Mono platform. I can 
only recommend to run MD on machines with >= 2 GB of RAM.

Second tip: Always use the latest version of MD (2.4 final is the current 
one), as older versions used to be quite buggy and even more RAM-hungry.

Kind regards
