For Windows development, XNA is probably a much more viable alternative (very active community, well supported, etc.). For Linux development, I'm not sure, but I'll share my own experience:

Several years ago I was considering developing for Linux using C#, but it seemed like there was a strange resistance in the community to use of Mono, mostly centered around patent scares and anti-Microsoft propaganda. Perhaps it was just the communities I visited, and I'm not saying it was indicative of Linux users in general, but the experience left a somewhat sour taste in my mouth and I abandoned my ideas for the time being.

I also found the lack of activity around SDL.NET, OpenTK, GTK#, etc. disheartening. Of course, things may have changed, as I said this was years ago.
