can mono be portable?

Can you explain me please what Portable.NET is?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable.NET

Is portable meant to be running on most platforms or meant to be run without installation?

EDIT:
I found mono. (for windows/linux)
http://www.mono-project.com/Downloads

Did someone test it yet? If it works it would be worth to have it porable, or?

The portable.net is meant as

The portable.net is meant as in porting the code to another os. You can have mono on a USB drive. (Install, copy files. There are many unnecessary files, deleting can bring the size down.) Not Microsoft's .NET Framework.

so in other words...

...it's "port-able" (able to be ported to other platforms),
not really
"portable" ('it just works', w/o need for installation on the host PC and leaving no traces of itself behind)...

Anyone working on it? Worth a request? :)

Mono is open source.

So this could be the way to make to make great .net apps (paint.net and keypass 2 in the future) portable?

PDN doesn't work with mono.

PDN doesn't work with mono. When a mono port comes out I will be one of the first to jump on making it portable. Smile

sorry for asking

PDN? What is PDN?

Well, if you are able to do it convinced what about .net? Is it technically impossible to do it?

License doesn`t matter if you either just use it for yourself or just post a launcher/source.

PDN = Paint.NET Someone

PDN = Paint.NET

Someone actually ported it to mono, but there is no download.
