Thanks for the reply.

I went through mono-project and also checked the download size of mono for Mac OX and Linux machines. The download size is more than 50MB. Downloading that big file on client machines will be a big problem. I guess this file includes development tools and some other unwanted stuff also. Is there any smaller downloadable file around 3-4 MB, just the runtime framework (like .Net framework) that enables to run .Net application on non windows platform.
