comment What do you suggest for cross platform apps, including web
Performance difference is another thing I have on my checklist of things to look at to determine if it is the route I want to go. As with the GUI, for a desktop version I could use something like GTK, or just build each independently in the proper way for each OS. Which linux would use GTK anyways. Web would be standard HTML5/JS/Canvas. I was also wondering if I could even have a basic window and embed a webkit window in there so I could use the websites UI locally. But I'm not sure about that yet and need to look into that possibility more.

But this still makes me wonder, with the things I want to do, would using C# and mono/.net be a smart choice, or could it be better to pick a different platform. So far it seems like using C# and mono could work as long as I am willing to make a UI for the different platforms, like web and mobile (which I could do both with html5 and web views on the mobile platform which are known to work well with things like sencha touch and others. but that's another discussion I think.), and desktop (maybe gtk too)

Yes those are very good points. I see that c# itself is cross platform, but its the features I want to use that may or may not supported in a given system. That makes sense. So mono primarily is the making of .Net libraries work on other platforms, not C#.
