MonoGame is now available on Linux.  A big thanks goes out to Andre for all his efforts to make the port available.

Now you no longer have to learn XNA (2D only for now) programming on Windows.  Instead you can use your favorite operating system.

MonoGame is now available on 5 different platforms: Mac OSX, iPhone, Android, Linux and  MonoGame even offers a version for Windows as well.

Check out the samples that are available: Linux Samples
