Why trade mono for Java?
C# is a much nicer GUI programming language. And mono applications start up much faster than Java applications.
Anything that needs special splash-screen support (see Java 1.6) in order to keep the user interested is far too slow for desktop use, in my opinion. I'm not willing to wait more than 0.5 seconds for a text editor.
