[Mono-list] just installed mono, most basic test failed.

Hello, everyone.
Pardon my interjection;
I wanted to note that we (at our company) have fully working code (mono) running on two different operating systems (Windows and Linux), so while it might not be standard, if you write code to fit different operating systems, it is entirely possible to have cross-platform in mono... But as noted earlier, if this was not done from the beginning and things are hardcoded or use OS-specific functions, this will obviously yield issues.

Med venlig hilsen / Best Regards

It's not like Java where you can blindly expect your code to run across platforms.  More like Python or Erlang or numerous other languages and runtimes where most of the code will work across platforms, but some libraries are platform-specific.

WCF's TCP binding isn't going to work in it's current state, so if you're unwilling to choose a cross platform communications library, then it won't be a good fit across platforms.  That's more of a WCF issue than a mono issue, and well, WCF doesn't have cross platform in mind.  It's _Windows_ Communication Foundation.

If you want binary communications and want it to work cross platform and you want it to be more robust than simple sockets, then I would really recommend you use something more like ZeroMQ https://github.com/zeromq/netmq.

Mono is not a fully functional and complete .Net Framework virtual machine for Mac... It's a pity...
