[Mono-list] App: Cross Platform Programming

Mono is cross-platform as in: it runs on multiple platforms.
For desktop operating systems theres GTK# which pretty much works on all
the major OSs (Windows, OSX and Linux) just the same.
Mono is unnecessary on WP7/8 since they both run .Net already.
It has different bindings for Wii and Playstation because they both have
different APIs, and so on.

By cross-platform, mono guarantees to run the same code over all the
systems that are supported, 
but sometimes you'll have to write several GUI interfaces to counter
each platform.

You'll have the whole .Net library which ever platform you choose.
