Mono is a cross platform version of the CLR, and you can use Mono if you desire to use IronPython on platforms other than Windows. Mono, like IronPython, is an open source project. The complete source code for the virtual machine, its class libraries and compiler is available for download, experimentation and use.

Mono can run IronPython (as well as other languages based on the Microsoft Dynaic Language Runtime) on various operating systems (Linux, MacOS X, Solaris, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Windows) as well as on a variety of hardware platforms (x86, x86-64, PowerPC, ARM, SPARC, Itanium, MIPS and a few more). For full details see the list.

It not only runs IronPython, but includes FePy as part of the distribution.
