Mono and .NET
Hey all,
Well we all use Linux for a reason. Its just better :)

Well, I am managaing some servers, both windows and linux, I would like to migrate to linux, period. However, of course there are those .NET ASP programmers (web programming). They all compile code off site, and upload to server for web serving. Is Mono right for me? Will it work just as well as serving these ASP pages on a windows machine?

THanks for the advise!!

The current release handles ASP.NET 2.0 (and VB, FWIW) but Mono doesn't have 100% coverage of .NET features, so this will only work if the developers actively support the move, and are willing to modify their code to work around any issues with missing functions that arise. Otherwise they can probably just say "It doesn't run our code and doesn't integrate with Visual Studio", and kill the project instantly :(. You may also have to consider the database aspect, as ASP.NET usually means some version of SQL Server.
