I think it is a bit of an chicken-egg problem. The advantage of C,
Python an Vala is, that the tools and dependencies are available in the
Extras-Repository. To get a Mono based app running, you first have to go
to the Mono webpage and add a new repository to your tablet. Then you
have to find the app somewhere on the net and install it.
It's just not as user friendly and people who actually want to develop
in C# have a problem announcing their software because it cannot be
uploaded to this common place.
If you Everaldo could get Mono, Gtk#, etc. to the Extras-Repository I
think this would be a first big step.
