Some things run faster in mono, and some things run faster in .Net. In extreme cases, one platform will run 10x or 40x faster than the other. 

Also, if you enable optimization, sometimes it results in 10x performance difference.

In general, it is best not to think about it too much. But if you have a situation where you need to think about it and dig into it, you're going to have to work your way down to a specific method call or something like that. The email you wrote above was nowhere near the level of detail necessary to figure it out.
