=Running C# code on debian linux

Well, since I've got over two thousand C# applications coded on my windows PC, let's see about putting them to use on my debian system.
Thanks to a project named mono, this is easy!

We may as well see a glimps of mono on a windows PC. This can be done by 'C:/'

find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum -b
(Note: for the above to work, "cd"...
