    There is an open source effort to port .NET to Linux, PowerPC, SPARC, etc. called "Mono". It's a fairly complete effort that includes a C# compiler, debugger, ADO.NET, ASP.NET, ..., and of course the CLR (CLI).

    Current version is 0.28 (pre-release). First release is planned for first quarter of 2004.

    "Question 109: What operating systems/CPUs do you support

    Mono currently runs on Linux, Windows, Solaris, FreeBSD, HP-UX and MacOS X.

    There is a JIT engine available for x86 processors that can generate code and optimizations tailored for a particular CPU.

    Interpreters exist for the SPARC v8, SPARC v9, Itanium, HP-PA, PowerPC and StrongARM CPUs."
