Monodevelop - IDE for developing .NET apps under Linux
f-spot      - Graphics package
beagle      - search thing

XSP runs with mod_mono which is an Apache2 module. xsp is the ASP.NET
server.

Usually, the files in /usr/bin that run .NET applications are just
scripts that execute mono with some argument or other. The argument used
points to the appropriate .exe in /usr/lib[64]/application_name. For
example, the one for monodevelop in /usr/bin reads (on my box - snipped
down a lot!)

MD_BIN_PATH=/usr/lib/monodevelop/bin

exec -a "monodevelop"  /usr/bin/mono --debug ./MonoDevelop.exe "$@"

This sets the binary path to be /usr/lib/monodevelop/bin - the files in
there are not Linux binaries, rather they are .NET files which need mono
to run.

The second line executes /usr/bin/mono (the runtime), sets it to debug
mode and runs MonoDevelop.exe which is in /usr/lib/monodevelop/bin with
any arguments in needs (the "$@" bit).

.NET apps using mono do this to make it look like the binary is a native
linux one rather than a .NET one.
