As far as I know, Microsoft does not have a .tar or .gz file that will install the .NET Framework on Linux (I could be wrong since Microsofts partnership with Novell and the whole SUSE Linux deal)

I know that MONO is, eseentially, C# for linux but do not know if you can run apps created in visual studio.

You can write code in Visual Studio, and then compile it with Mono (http://www.mono-project.com) to run it on multiple platforms.

There is the proviso that Mono doesn't support all the features in .NET as some rely on underlying Windows specific APIs.

Acc to your reply .NET is not platform independence. It should require mono to run on linux.

No. Mono != the .NET framework. Mono is a project that attempts to assimilate the C# language for use on the Linux platform but, as Joe pointed out, some of the .NET classes make calls to Windows API's so obviously this functionality will not be found in Mono. So to be very blunt, the .NET Framework is NOT available on Linux.
