[Mono-list] What is needed for the end user to run Mono apps?

AFAIK, on windows, they should already have .net installed and as such
most mono applications should work as is if all dependencies are
installed (ie: gtk#/gtk). On linux, if they do not have mono
installed, they will need to install it.

There is also the option of bundling mono, see
Though since that website is seldom updated and pretty much half dead,
it is unclear whether that information is up to date or not. It also
might not work on windows.

Hope this helps,
