    How much of the mono home page FAQ / readme / documentation / etc have you read?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    It's pretty complete, but it is missing some things.

    I use Windows Forms on Mono, with OpenGL (C++ lib -> C Interface -> Mono P/Invoke). Some of the WinForms functionality is still missing though (for example, MDI windows are broken, AFAIK).

    If you stick to .NET 1.1, you should be safe. It's the .NET 2.0 stuff that's more incomplete than anything.
