[Mono-osx] Getting Started Help

Have never really used a Mac before but got one for free so figured I would
play around with Mono to see how easily I could get .net programs to run.

I have installed the most recent release of mono and I built the following
very simply console application directly on the Mac using the MSC compiler.

using System;
using System.Text;

namespace MacMonoTest
        class Program

                static void Main(string[] args)
                        Console.WriteLine("This is totally cool");



The code above compiled using MSC works just fine.

The same code compiled and built using VS 2008 targeting .net 2.0 throws all
sorts of exceptions when I try to run it on the Mac.  BTW, not sure this
matters but I have a new Intel based MacBook.

Should I be able to build apps using Visual Studio on my XP machine and then
have them run on my Mac using mono so long as I don't do any Windows
specific things in the app?

Thanks for the feedback.
