How about trying your .NET app with Mono? That'd be quite a good test.
Anyway, wouldn't trying to fix the performance issues of your app be a
priority over adding more features?

By the way, Mono is an open source project, and Attachmate can't do anything
about that. They only own the commercial Mono products. For the record,
Attachmate has fired the whole Mono team, which led to the creation of
Xamarin (http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2011/May-16.html).
