[Mono-osx] Which Mono to download for OS X?

I believe the SDK includes the Runtime, so you should just be able to grab the SDK for building (and running) apps.

As Mel points out, you'll probably want the IDE. Xamarin Studio is the new MonoDevelop, so don't be surprised by the name change when you go to download.

Finally, the code snippets on the page you linked don't represent a complete program and at least one of them had invalid code. So if you copy and paste without understanding C# syntax and some of the fundamentals you're in for a long night. :-)

A search on Mono or C# tutorials would probably be a more productive way to begin.
