Not the .NET framework per sé, but the CLR, CTS, C# (in other words, the
ECMA specs), are implemented for the Mac in Rotor, the Shared Source
implementation of the ECMA specs by Microsoft Research. While you are at
it, remember you can only use the ECMA part of the .NET framework, so no
WinForms, no ADO.NET and no anything else that is not in the spec. But,
at the plus side, your code will run seamlessly on any ECMA compliant
CLR, be it the .NET Framework by Microsoft, DotGNU, Mono or Rotor, so
true platform independence it is :)
