According to some benchmarks I recently read (don't remember where anymore),
mono was actually faster than .NET in most tested cases.

And that's understandable.
First, the core mono runtime/VM is written mostly in C, while the core
.NET framework runtime/VM is written in C++, and second, mono on Linux
profits from the faster speed of Linux filesystems.

(See Google's evaluation on EXT4 vs. XFS)
