Has anyone tried running an ASP.NET project via mono on a linux server? Can it be done? was the performance good?

I am successfully running an ASP.NET MVC application on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS in a Rackspace Cloud Server.

If you are planning on working with ASP.NET v2.0 and .NET 3.5 including LINQ, I suggest the following procedure, which has led to my own setup. I am still struggling with some HTTPS requests under Apache but with xsp it all works just like on a Windows Server 2008 running IIS.

Excellent link. I got it running with no problems with it. The script was especially nice :D –  acidzombie24 May 22 '10 at 18:07

I've never tried this, but according to this page, Mono does have an ASP.NET implementation.
