Andreas, could you use windows-mono and run the the MS.NET test and Mono
test on the same OS and same machines? That's the only way to get a clear
indication if there is actually a problem with mono or not.
Comparing linux-mono with windows MS.NET has far too many variables to even
know where to begin. For example, you're linux box could just have terrible
drivers whereas the MS box has very good drivers. That alone could be the
cause of the massive difference you're seeing.
